Ovarian Kaleidoscope Database

  • Well integrated
  • None
Tissue specificity of gene expression has always been a "hot-button" item. It is in this phenomenon that tissues arise from undifferentiated cells and maintain their characteristics. The Ovarian Kaleidoscope Database is the first ovarian-specific gene expression database I've seen and has a lot to offer. Visitors will find a search engine for retrieving gene information from the database. These records include descriptions on function, regulation, localization, mutations, and relevant links. Extensive comments accompany many of the fields above. The site is nicely interfaced with popular molecular biological databases, including OMIM, UNIGENE, Prosite, NCBI, and many others. Users can also click on human chromosome map icons to retrieve relevant info. A simple, but elegant site.
