ToxoDB: an integrated Toxoplasma gondii database resource

Nucleic Acids Res. 2008 Jan;36(Database issue):D553-6. doi: 10.1093/nar/gkm981. Epub 2007 Nov 14.


ToxoDB ( is a genome and functional genomic database for the protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii. It incorporates the sequence and annotation of the T. gondii ME49 strain, as well as genome sequences for the GT1, VEG and RH (Chr Ia, Chr Ib) strains. Sequence information is integrated with various other genomic-scale data, including community annotation, ESTs, gene expression and proteomics data. ToxoDB has matured significantly since its initial release. Here we outline the numerous updates with respect to the data and increased functionality available on the website.
