ReCGiP: Database of Reproduction Candidate Genes in Pigs based on bibliomics

Welcome

Welcome to ReCGiP Browser! The ReCGiP interface supports browsing of the gene by network or pathway, advanced text search by gene ID, gene official symbol, organism and reproduction processes or reproduction traits. The database contains textual information and references, as well as links to relevant PubMed and Gene records at the NCBI.

Reproduction in pigs is one of the most economically important traits but low heritability. For the improvement of reproductive performance, much research has focused on the identification of quantitative trait loci (QTL) regions and candidate genes. However, because at least three generations are required and there are the long generation interval in pigs, QTL analyses are more time consuming and costly. So most of researchers use the candidate gene approaches. The first step of the candidate gene approach is to find a suitable candidate gene.

ReCGiP (Database of Reproduction Candidate Genes in Pigs based on bibliomics) aims to provide candidate genes for reproduction in pigs. ReCGiP presents diverse candidate genes for reproduction in pigs association information and gene co-occurrence network, based on association mining from large amounts of biomedical literature and comparative genomics. In addition, ReCGiP provides integrated GO annotation and biological pathway information collected from the Internet. ReCGiP also offers association information about homologous gene of cattle and sheep.
