  1. Beta Cell Genomics
    Resource Category : Databases -> Human Genes and Diseases -> Gene, system or disease specific databases

    Brief Description : Beta Cell Genomics is a public web site that supports research in diabetes, pancreatic development and beta cell function by providing information about genes expressed in cells of the pancreas. Beta Cell Genomics displays expression profiles for individual genes and information about transcripts, promoter elements and transcription factor binding sites. Gene expression results are obtained from studies examining tissue expression, pancreatic development and growth, differentiation of insulin-producing cells, islet or beta-cell injury, and genetic models of impaired beta cell function. The expression datasets are derived using different microarray platforms, including the BCBC PancChips and Affymetrix gene expression arrays. Other datasets include semi-quantitative RT-PCR and MPSS expression studies. For selected microarray studies, lists of differentially expressed genes, derived from PaGE analysis, are displayed on the site. Beta Cell Genomics provides database queries and tools to examine the relationship between a gene, its transcriptional regulation, protein function and expression in pancreatic tissues.
