TcSNP -- Trypanosoma cruzi SNP database

What you can do:
Find information about Trypanosoma cruzi genetic variation.
  • The TcSNP database integrates information on genetic variation (polymorphisms and mutations) for different stocks, strains and isolates of Trypanosoma cruzi, the causative agent of Chagas disease.
  • The database incorporates sequences (genes from the T. cruzi reference genome, mRNAs, ESTs and genomic sequences); multiple sequence alignments obtained from these sequences; and single-nucleotide polymorphisms and small indels identified by scanning these multiple sequence alignments.
  • Information in TcSNP can be readily interrogated to arrive at gene sets, or SNP sets of interest based on a number of attributes.
  • Sequence similarity searches using BLAST are also supported.
  • TcSNP contains nearly 170,000 high-confidence candidate SNPs, derived from the analysis of annotated coding sequences.
  • As new sequence data become available, TcSNP will incorporate these data, mapping new candidate SNPs onto the reference genome sequences.
