About Insect Knowledge Portal

With the various recent initiatives of genome sequencing, high throughput genomics and proteomics projects on multiple insects, the bioinformatics data analysis methods has been of prime importance to enable the scientists in deciphering the new information about the insects. Hence, the bioinformatics researchers and professionals have also commenced the development of insect customized databases and analysis tools. The molecular biologist are using high throughput genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, regulatory genomics and proteomics methods to decipher the systems level biology, physiology, disease mechanisms, host-pathogen interaction, insect resistance, growth and development of various important insects. This portal will facilitate a gist of detailed survey of insect specific data resources and application tools on genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, regulatory genomics, miRNA profiling, RNA interference studies etc. of all important insects.

The portal majorly categorizes four sections which gives both molecular and Morphological information about some important Insects:

  • Genomics
  • Proteomics
  • Transcriptomics
  • Others
