SilkSatDb: The First Comprehensive Database on Insect Microsatellites

Silkworm Biology


SilkSatDb is an interactive online relational database that catalogs information about the microsatellite repeats of the silkworm, Bombyx mori. The user can query for microsatellites extracted from WGS and EST sequences of silkworm genome. It also stores information on primers developed and validated in our laboratory. The interface is coupled with Autoprimer, a primer-designing program, using which user can design primers for the loci of interest.
