Welcome to ApiDots

ApiDots is a database integrating mRNA/EST sequences from numerous Apicomplexan parasites. ESTs and mRNAs were clustered and further assembled to generate consensus sequences. These consensus sequences were then subjected to database searches against protein sequences and protein domain sequences. The underlying relational structure of this database allows researchers to analyze these data and pose biologically interesting questions.

Note: ApiDots is currently unavailable. For data on apicomplexan EST assemblies, please see EuPathDB
