Welcome to TUBIC—the
University BioInformatics Center.
Currently, TUBIC is one of the key websites for life sciences of the Ministry of Education,
China, and a partner of China National Center for Bioinformation (CNCB). This Bioinformatics center offers a number of services
based on the bioinformatics software tools developed by members of TUBIC during the past
These software tools include those for ab initio gene-recognition (ZCURVE_B) and
replication origin prediction in genomes of bacteria, archaea, and budding yeast
(Ori-Finder, Ori-Finder 2 and Ori-Finder 3), gene-identification
for virus genomes, and
especially for coronavirus genomes (ZCURVE_CoV).
Additionally, TUBIC also hosts some online databases, such as the Z-curve database
(Zcurve_DB), the Database of Essential Genes (DEG), the
database of replication
origins (DoriC), and the database listing potential
G-quadruplex regulated genes (Greglist). Now TUBIC
serves as one of the windows to display
the achievements of Bioinformatics research in China. TUBIC.ORG is
the mirror site of TUBIC.
