The Signal Transduction Laboratory of the Institute of Chemistry of USP contributes to Sugarcane Systems Biology studies and for this it analyzes and provides results obtained in genome sequencing, transcriptome analysis and metabolome of this grass.

In addition to allowing access to data we develop datamining tools. The SUCEST-FUN DB database has the font-end developed in Java language and several scripts developed in Perl and R languages that analyze the data and insert the results in the database, using the SQL language.

Additionally, several scripts format and process data from bench experiments.

The SUCEST-FUN Database includes the reference genome of sugarcane, data from other genome analyses such as RNA-Seq and ESTs, annotation, gene catalogues, metabolomics, differential expression data using microarrays, physiology and technology data.
