We are pleased to announce that Cambridge University members now have access to Repbase.
from the publisher website: About Repbase
“Repbase is a database of prototypic sequences representing repetitive DNA from different eukaryotic species. Repbase is being used in genome sequencing projects worldwide as a reference collection for masking and annotation of repetitive DNA (e.g. by RepeatMasker or CENSOR).
Repbase has been developed since 1990 under the direction of Jerzy Jurka (the founder).
Most prototypic sequences from Repbase are consensus sequences of large families and subfamilies of repeats. Smaller families are represented by sequence examples. Repbase describes many families of repeats unreported anywhere else. Therefore, it was referred to as an “electronic journal.” Individual contributions are documented in Repbase version released in EMBL format. Repbase is often used in a FASTA format which removes references to the original authors. To remedy the situation, effective September 1 2001 we created a separate electronic journal, Repbase Reports, which publishes all new data to be compiled in Repbase.
Also available to access via the Databases A-Z.
