ASPicDB is a database designed to provide access to reliable annotations of the alternative splicing pattern of human genes, obtained by ASPic algorithm (T. Castrignano' et al. 2006) and Pintron algorithm (Y. Pirola et al. 2012), and to the functional annotation of predicted isoforms.

Enhanced query and download facilities allow users to select and extract specific sets of data related to genes, transcripts and introns fulfilling a combination of user-defined criteria. Several tabular and graphical views of the results are presented, providing a comprehensive assessment of the functional implication of alternative splicing in the gene set under investigation. ASPicDB also includes information on tissue-specific splicing patterns of normal and cancer cells, based on available EST data and their library source annotation.
