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

About Us

This work is one of the major tasks of the breed molecular design in pig, which is supported by the National High Technology Research and Development Program of China (863 project) and National 973 project. This work is also supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China and China Postdoctoral Science Foundation.

The major tasks of the project are:

    Harvesting candidate genes for fecundity in pig through comparative genomics and data-mining towards comprehensive literatures in pig and human ;
    Predicting the reproductive hub genes based on gene-gene cooccurrence network of literatures;
    Indentifying enrichment of reproduction associated pathways through using KOBAS (Mao, et al., 2005);
    Constructing a bibliomics based database of reproduction-related genes.
