dbSTEP - Database of Splice Translational Efficiency Polymorphisms

Splice Translational Efficiency polymorphisms (STEPs) affect mRNA 5' untranslated sequence but not the protein sequence. This class of potentially functional variants are a class of polymorphisms in non-coding RNA that may affect splicing such as to alter translational efficiency. dbSTEP presents the results of a genome-wide survey of STEPs.
