Information about approximately 38,000 full-length cDNA clones that were completely sequenced in the Rice full-length cDNA project is shown in the database. The full-length cDNA clones were collected from various tissues treated under various stress conditions. The database contains not only information about complete nucleotide sequences and encoded amino acid sequences, but also results of homology searches against public databases, mapping information, information about patterns of alternative splicing, protein domains and transmembrane structures, and information about cellular localizations and gene functions annotated with Gene Ontology.
The full-length cDNA libraries were constructed from randomly picked 170,000 clones derived from twenty types of stressed tissues of japonica rice. The clones were grouped into 28,000 independent classes according to their 3' terminal single-pass sequences. All of the representative clones were completely sequenced.
The information about full-length cDNA clones were collected and completely sequenced by the joint collaboration of National Institute of Agrobiological Sciences (NIAS), Foundation of Advancement of International Science (FAIS), and RIKEN institute, under the supervision of BRAIN (Bio-oriented Technology Research Advancement Institution). This work has been undertaken through the project named "The Rice Full-Length cDNA".
