The Pathogen-Host Interactions database (PHI-base): additions and future developments.
Bottom Line: The Pathogen-Host Interactions database (PHI-base) catalogues experimentally verified pathogenicity, virulence and effector genes from bacterial, fungal and protist pathogens.Mutant phenotypes are associated with gene information.PHI-base phenotypes were mapped via their associated gene information to reference genomes available in Ensembl Genomes.

Mentions: Through the cross-referencing with Ensembl Genomes (http://ensemblgenomes.org) PHI-base annotations can now be visualized directly in their genomic context, identifying features, such as pathogenicity islands through a simple system of colour coding using the nine high-level phenotyping terms. This new way to explore the data in PHI-base is shown in Figure 3. The phenotyping term ‘mixed outcome’ is also used to identify genes where a range of interaction outcomes have been identified depending on the host species and/or tissue type evaluated.
