The Genetic Information Research Institute (GIRI), founded in 1994 by Dr. Jerzy Jurka, is a private, nonprofit institution devoted to the study and characterization of repetitive or mobile DNA elements in eukaryotic species. The Institute maintains and develops Repbase, also known as Repbase Update, a database of representative repetitive sequences from eukaryotic species. Repbase is being used worldwide as the reference standard for annotating the presence of repetitive DNA in genomic data. GIRI publishes Repbase Reports, a monthly e-journal that reports newly identified repetitive DNA elements, which are subsequently stored and shared in Repbase. GIRI also provides computational tools (Censor and RepbaseSubmitter) and online services for screening and submission of the repeats.
