XenOrtho DB (Xenopus Ortholog DataBase) is a database in which ortholog genes of Xenopus tropicalis, Xenopus laevis, and humans are listed.

Orthologs were identified through homology searches of genes in each pair of homologous synteny blocks (conserved regions within two sets of chromosomes). Synteny blocks were found with SyMAP4.0.

The release of this database is a project of NBRP X. tropicalis and greatly supported by Professor Fukui, Chuo University.

SyMAP 4.2 Tour (external link) is helpful in learning the terminology related to SyMap. If you have any other questions about XenOrtho DB, please contact Dr. Igawa (click “Contact Information” in the left side bar).
