ABSTRACT
Functional genomics has proven to be an efficient tool in identifying genes involved in various biological functions. However the availability of commercially important seaweed Eucheuma denticulatum functional resources is still limited. EuDBase is the first seaweed online repository that provides integrated access to ESTs of Eucheuma denticulatum generated from samples collected from Kudat and Semporna in Sabah, Malaysia. The database stored 10,031 ESTs that are clustered and assembled into 2,275 unique transcripts (UT) and 955 singletons. Raw data were automatically processed using ESTFrontier, an in-house automated EST analysis pipeline. Data was collected in MySQL database. Web interface is implemented using PHP and it allows browsing and querying EuDBase through search engine. Data is searchable via BLAST hit, domain search, Gene Ontology or KEGG Pathway. A user-friendly interface allows the identification of sequences either using a simple text query or similarity search. The development of EuDBase is initiated to store, manage and analyze the E. denticulatum ESTs and to provide accumulative digital resources for the use of global scientific community. EuDBase is freely available from http://www.inbiosis.ukm.my/eudbase/.
