Dear ciliate researcher,

We are pleased to announce that Tetrahymena Gene Expression Database (TGED) and Website ( are now available.

TGED is a web-accessible database of information about the Tetrahymena thermophila genome-wide gene expression. Currently, TGED provides microarray data of T. thermophila during growth, starvation and conjugation completed by the Gorovsky lab at the University of Rochester, Rochester, NY, USA and the Miao Lab at the Institute of Hydrobiolgy, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Wuhan, CHINA. You can search for the expression profile and co-expressed genes of a particular gene using the gene ID from TGD (Tetrahymena Genome Database) of 2006 version.

Please feel free to send comments, suggestions, or questions to TGED at [log in to unmask]
