SMAL: A Resource of Spontaneous Mutation Accumulation Lines. [PMID: 24531082]
Mutation is the ultimate source of genetic variation and evolution. Mutation accumulation (MA) experiments are an alternative approach to study de novo mutation events directly. We have constructed a resource of Spontaneous Mutation Accumulation Lines (SMAL; http://cefg.uestc.edu.cn/smal), which contains all the current publicly available MA lines identified by high-throughput sequencing. We have relocated and mapped the mutations based on the most recent genome annotations. A total of 5,608 single base mutations and 540 other mutations were obtained and are recorded in the current version of the SMAL database. The integrated data in SMAL provide detailed information that can be used in new theoretical analyses. We believe that the SMAL resource will help researchers better understand the processes of genetic variation and the incidence of disease.
