tsRBase: Comprehensive Database for tsRNA Expression and Function

tRNA-derived small RNAs (tsRNAs), generated from precursor or mature tRNA, are a new type of small non-coding RNAs (sncRNAs), which have been found ubiquitously existing in prokaryotes and eukaryotes.

The tsRBase is a comprehensive database of tsRNA sequence, expression features and function for multiple species. It provides information of over 120,000 tsRNAs which collected from high-throughput sequencing data of 20 species, including bacteria and fungi, plant and animal. Furthermore, tsRBase explored and displayed proteins associated tsRNAs from CLIP/RIP data, as well as tsRNAs’ targets from CLASH and CLEAR-CLIP data, which might reveal the role of tsRNA in vivo.

Users can look for the information of their interested tsRNA by searching in "Search" module of the site. tsRBase provides three searching tools, including searching by tsRBase ID, by tRNA and by sequences. Besides, tsRNA-target relationship is supplied in "tsRNA Target" module. Additionally, tsRBase excavated all the scientific literatures in open accesses articles, which is supplied in module "tsRNA Literatures". Users can search their interested tsRNAs/targets and literatures in "tsRNA Target" and "tsRNA Literatures" respectively. Any queries about the website should be directed at tsrbase@hotmail.com.
