Welcome to Compagen!
Compagen is a comparative genomics platform for early branching metazoan animals, maintained in the Bosch Laboratory at the University of Kiel. It stores various raw and processed sequence datasets along the evolutionary tree from sponges and cnidarians up to the tunicates and lower vertebrates.
The idea is to facilitate access and analysis of genomic and transcriptomic data for workgroups that investigate “non-popular” model organisms without sophisticated online analytical resources. The Databases at Compagen contain selected raw genomic and EST sequence datasets available from public domains (NCBI Trace archive, EST). In addition to the public datasets Compagen also provides already processed data like CAP3 assembled ESTs, Unigene collections or predicted peptides.

How to use Compagen
DataSets: Sequences in fasta format are available at the DataSets section. The datasets can be viewed or downloaded (.zip compressed) and are classified according to following types:
- EST: Expressed sequence tags (raw reads).
- CAP3: Cap3 assembled sequences.
- T-CDS: Transcript models (contigs) derived from assembled ESTs (Sanger, 454, etc.).
- T-PEP: Predicted peptides from transcriptome assemblies (ESTScan, etc.).
- G-CDS: Transcript models predicted from genome assembly.
- G-PEP: Protein models predicted from genome assembly.
- WGS: Whole genome shotgun (raw reads).
- WGA: Whole genome assembly (contigs / scaffolds).
Blast Server: Perform BLAST search against our DataSets.
