ASPic is a novel method to predict the exon-intron structure of a gene that is optimally compatible to a set of transcript sequences (such as mRNAs and/or ESTs), while ASPicDB is a database designed to provide access to reliable annotations of the alternative splicing pattern of human genes, obtained by ASPic algorithm, and to the functional annotation of predicted isoforms.
Please cite the following article when using ASPic or ASPicDB:
