Motivation: Horizontal transfer of transposable (HTT) elements among eukaryotes was discovered in the mid-1980s. As then, >300 new cases have been described. New findings about HTT are revealing the evolutionary impact of this phenomenon on host genomes. In order to provide an up to date, interactive and expandable database for such events, we developed the HTT-DB database. Results: HTT-DB allows easy access to most of HTT cases reported along with rich information about each case. Moreover, it
more » ... allows the user to generate tables and graphs based on searches using Transposable elements and/or host species classification and export them in several formats. Availability and implementation: This database is freely available on the web at HTT-DB was developed based on Java and MySQL with all major browsers supported. Tools and software packages used are free for personal or non-profit projects. Contact:
