ready Insertion Sequence Finder

Abbreviation:IS Finder

General Information
This database provides a list of insertion sequences (IS) isolated from bacteria and archae. It is organized into individual files containing their general features (name, size, origin, family.....) as well as their DNA and potential protein sequences. Some of the entries have been identified as individual elements by their insertion activities but a growing number are included from their description in sequenced bacterial genomes. It also includes certain transposons, in particular, members of the Tn3 family of replicative transposons.
