MYCbase: A Database of MYC

MYCbase is a tertiary database compiling various aspects of Myc relevant to disease biology. The information contained in this web based repository can be divided into the following categories: mutations, protein-protein interactions (PPIs), gene expression data, mass spectrometry data, small chemical drug molecules against PPIs (PPIMs), miRNA targeting myc, metabolic pathways, methylation pattern, protein abundance, interactions of transcription factors with myc gene, and post translational modifications (PTMs) of Myc protein. Data is compiled from peer-reviewed literature and secondary databases. This is an endeavour to accumulate and offer pertinent information necessary to explore Myc biology.
