Welcome to the MachiBase Web Site

MachiBase (http://machibase.gi.k.u-tokyo.ac.jp/) provides a comprehensive and freely accessible resource regarding Drosophila melanogaster 5'-end mRNA transcription at different developmental states, supporting studies on the variabilities of promoter transcriptional activities and gene expression profiles in the fruitfly. The data were generated in conjunction with the recently developed high-throughput genome sequencer Illumina / Solexa using a newly developed 5'-end mRNA collection method.
