Team leader: Guoqing Li
This is one of the most productive group majoring on database construction and web-based applications development. To make better understanding and availability of the massive data BGI generated, we set up sites for project introduction, genome browsing, data downloading and related issues. We also provide services on traditional genome analysis and accessing of relevant tools. Concerned databases and services can be accessed at http://bioinformatics.genomics.org.cn/bio/databases.html
1) YH database http://yh.genomics.org.cn/index.jsp
BGI finished sequencing the first diploid Asian human genome and we are setting up the database and web site. It is composed of a blast service, a Gbrowse-based genome viewer and YH genotype/phenotype search engine. The map viewer can unprecedentedly exhibit all short reads alignments which makes variants markedly distinguishable. And this site is also a primitive attempt to personal medicine.
One can view and access YH data including raw sequences, alignments, consensus genome and variants against NCBI Human v36.
2) Silkworm polymorphism database
Tens of silkworms are being sequenced and a study on polymorphism map is ongoing. A database and web site will be establish for viewing silkworm genome and polymorphism. Online mapping and phylogeny analysis will too be provided soon.
3) Generic genome database platform
New sequencing technology brings out an era of new species genome sequencing. We decided to develop a platform to contain all genomes we have done and we are going to sequence.
