DGIL Porcine Translational Research Database
Click SEARCH or logo to enter into the database
As of April 2021, the database has been online for 16 years. It is used by research scientists working with pigs worldwide as well as commercial and public developers of new reagents. This database is the largest manually curated database for any agriculture species and is unique among porcine gene databases by linking gene expression to gene function, identification of related gene pathways, and connectivity with other porcine/human gene databases. It is referenced in more than 100 manuscripts or websites and used as an information resource for several reagent vendors.

The sequences in this database (and associated informatics) are available (in bulk) to extramural laboratories, via MTA, that are looking to supplement their analysis of the porcine genome. Please contact us if you are interested in this.
This database is currently in a beta version, there are some incomplete annotations. We cannot guarantee the performance of the antibodies or PCR assays that have not been tested in our lab under conditions not specified in the published literature.
