REPETDB is a database of transposable elements. Reference sequences for various species are stored with the Intermine data warehouse framework.

Reference transposable elements are presented with their evidences allowing to determine their classification according to PASTEC , the classifier of the REPET package. Transposable elements can be queried and visualized using the powerful capabilities of Intermine

Most of the REPETDB datasets also provide the consensus copy annotation on genome via a Track Hub referenced on Track Hub Registry .


Refer to the   documentation for more information about the REPETDB data submission.
