Based on the policy of H-Invitational consortium, all the annotation data is available without any restriction on academic purposes.
Please refer to "7. How to cite H-InvDB?", if you use the data for publication.
All the clones contained in the H-InvDB are registered in DNA databank (DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank) and publicly available. Please refer to "6.3 How do I obtain original clone of H-Inv cDNA?" about the request of each clone.
H-Inv cDNAs were provided by six DNA research centers and NEDO project of Japanese government.
H-Inv cDNAs were provided by six DNA research centers and FLJ project of Japanese government.

Please contact the data provider for each cDNA stated as below.
In order to find a 'cDNA', or the annotation concerning that cDNA, you can search using any of the following:
1. The DNA databank accession number.
2. The Nucleotide sequence for that cDNA.
3. Any piece of information associated with a particular 'cDNA' you would like to refer to (for example predicted disease associations etc.).
The actual procedures for each case are described as below.
Case 1. If you want to search by DNA databank accession number; please select the "ACCESSION NUMBER" option from the pull-down menu in the top page, enter the DNA databank accession number and click on "GO".
Case 2. If you want to search by nucleotide sequence; Please click on the link to "Blast" from the top page, enter the nucleotide sequences and click on "Search".
Case 3. If you want to search for any other information pertaining to a 'cDNA'; Please click on the "Advanced search" menu on the top page, enter any the required in the text boxes or checking boxes and click on "GO".
When you have your list of results you can obtain information on the H-Inv cDNA(s) associated with your query. Click on "HIT" to get into the cDNA view for a detailed view of the annotated data.
H-InvDB provides all the annotated data in flat file or XML format via HTTP or FTP.
Please select and download either flat file format or XML format at you convenience.
The test environments for H-InvDB are as below;
H-InvDB provides the top page in English and Japanese. The top page in the language with the highest preference is automatically recognized. (Note: if you set the language other than English nor Japanese as the highest preference, then top page will be shown in English)
You may change the language by changing the setting of the language preference of your browser. For example in Internet Explorer 6.0, select "Internet options ..." menu in "Tools", click on "Languages..." and add or modify the language preference.
The sequence source of each transcript is indicated by following exon colors in Locus view/G-integra.
(Light green): H-Inv full-length cDNA
(Dark green): Other mRNA
