|Synthetic Gene DataBase|
SGDB was initially outlined in Gang Wu's Ph. D. dissertation proposal (2004). This project is an essential step towards the ultimate goal of finding an appropriate method of gene recoding for optimizing protein over-expression. While we were collecting the information on synthetic genes, we realized that this could be a useful resource not only for us, but also for all colleagues who are interested in improving protein expression through manipulation of coding and non-coding sequences. Therefore, we decided to make all the information publically available.
To date, this database has collected 205 publications that reported synthetic genes in their studies (among which, 243 natural genes and 271 synthetic genes have been retrieved and stored in SGDB).
