|Prostate Epigenetic Database|
Prostate cancer (PC) develops in the prostate (a male sex gland) and is a common malignancy and a leading cause of cancer death among men. In addition to genetic alteration, epigenetic aberration plays key roles in progression of PC. Studies in epigenetic changes in PC have accumulated vast amount of useful data that could shed light on the development of PC and include potential epigenetic markers as diagnosis and prognosis for PC. Therefore, we constructed PEpiD to store the curated epigenetic data retrieved by literature mining, which previous studies indicated as involved in PC of human, mouse, and rat. A user-friendly interface is implemented for easy and flexible query. PEpiD can serve as an important resource for epigenetic research in PC.
