ready Group II introns database

General Information
Database for identification and cataloguing of group II introns. All bacterial introns listed are full-length and appear to be functional, based on intron RNA and IEP characteristics. The database names the full-length introns, and provides information on their boundaries, host genes, and secondary structures. In addition, the website provides tools for analysis that may be useful to researchers who encounter group II introns in DNA sequences.
