TeloBase is a curated database containing computationally predicted and experimentally confirmed telomere sequences of species across the whole tree of life.

The curation of new sequences is peer-reviewed by current members of the TeloBase community. To join the TeloBase community, you need to make a contribution to the database that is accepted by current members.

If you are an author or co-author of a work that is part of our database and want to become a member of the TeloBase community, please do contact us.
