TRANS-CONTIG: Transcription factors and their corresponding contigs, a web database

by Lewis, Kali C.

Abstract (Summary)
This study uses data created by the author at the NCBI, National Center for Biotechnology, to create a database for the purpose of investigating bioinformatics problems. At the NCBI, researchers have been studying snippets of DNA previously thought to be insignificant DNA. However, these snippets have been conserved throughout evolution and may be significantly important. The Transfac project at NCBI took data from the TRANSFAC database and matched it with its corresponding contigs. For this project, the author used this data and created, TRANS-CONTIG, a searchable web database. The database provides searching capabilities to the user and links directly to related NIH databases.
