ChISG Browser website

Our ChISG Browser website is now available.

It includes screenshots of RNA-seq data for each ISG under basal and IFN-induced conditions (as described in our recent paper in Veterinary Research on the Chicken Interferome) based on comparison of chick embryo fibroblast transcriptomic data from two commercial microarrays as well as RNA-seq, which identified almost 200 interferon-regulated/stimulated genes.
