TE Hub is an open and collaborative platform, providing an entry point and reference site for researchers interested in Transposable Element (TE) diversity, identification, and annotation.
TE Hub provides specialist information for the TE research community, with particular focus on databases, tools, and methods supporting identification/annotation. It aims to be as collaborative and community-driven as possible. TE Hub does not intend to replace individual online TE resources. Instead, it collates and links these entities, to lead researchers towards the individual resources that are most useful for the specific research question.
For generic information about Transposable Elements, Wikipedia is a good place to start.
Central to TE Hub is its open, supportive and collaborative nature. The TE Hub environment consists of:
You can find content in the TE Hub wiki in three ways:
Our wiki gives a primer in TE classification, catalogs published and online resources, and provides an overview about current community initiatives.
