  1. Full-Parasites
    Resource Category : Databases -> Genomics Databases (non-vertebrate) -> Unicellular eukaryotes genome databases

    Brief Description : Full-Parasites (http://fullmal.hgc.jp/) is a database of full-length-enriched cDNA libraries of two malaria parasites: Plasmodium falciparum, P. yoelii, and Toxoplasma gondii. The libraries were produced using the oligo-capping method, which replaces the cap structure of intact mRNA and can be used to selectively clone full-length cDNAs. 5 end-one-pass nucleotide sequences were determined for a large number of these cDNAs and were mapped on the genome sequences of the parasites. In the map viewer, transcription start sites represented by oligo-capped clones and splicing of conventional ESTs are shown. Draft genome sequences of murine malaria parasite P. yoelii are aligned with the genome sequences of P. falciparum for comparative biological studies. Such cDNA clones are an invaluable resource for determining the exact structures of expressed genes.
