RBPome RBPome

An integrative resource of CLIP-seq studies

Welcome to CLIPdb

CLIPdb aims to characterize the regulatory networks between RNA binding proteins (RBPs) and various RNA transcript classes by integrating large amounts of CLIP-seq (including HITS-CLIP, PAR-CLIP and iCLIP as variantions) data sets.
CLIPdb consistently annotated the CLIP-seq data sets and RBPs, and provides a user-friendly interface for quick navigation of the CLIP-seq data. To make the binding sites directly comparable and integratable across different CLIP-seq studies, CLIPdb applied uniform computational methods to identify transcriptome-wide binding sites using raw CLIP-seq data. Users can download the RBP binding sites of their interests.
We will continue to enrich CLIPdb with more CLIP-seq data sets, and other high-throughput post-transcriptional regulatory data, including ribosome profiling data sets.
CLIPdb 2 - POSTAR is available at http://POSTAR.ncrnalab.org.
