Welcome to StyloDB!

StyloDB is a user-updatable database of information about the Stylonychia lemnae genome sequence determined by the University of Witten/Herdecke, Germany and the University of Bern, Switzerland. StyloDB provides information on the genome, genes, and proteins of Stylonychia lemnae based on analyses performed at these institutes, scientific literature published by the Stylonychia lemnae research community, and other sources.

What's New!

DNA elimination model published for Stylonychia

Posted on 2018-06-12 00:00:00 by ciliate-curator

A new model for the identification and elimination of DNA sequences from the developing macronucleus has been published.

Postberg, et al., 27nt-RNAs guide histone variant deposition via ‘RNA-induced DNA replication interference’ and thus transmit parental genome partitioning in Stylonychia.

Congratulations to the authors!

2018 GSA Ciliate Molecular Biology Meeting

Posted on 2017-05-16 00:00:00 by ciliate-curator

We are pleased to announce the 2018 GSA Ciliate Molecular Biology Meeting that will take place July 17-22, 2018 at American University in Washington DC. We hope you will join us for this interactive and engaging meeting covering broad topics in ciliate molecular biology. This is a beautiful venue on the American University Campus with a new conference center and housing and an entertaining surrounding community. Flights into Reagan Washington or Dulles airports will accommodate our international ciliate community.

Please mark your calendars. More meeting information will follow.

See you in DC!
