PASTORAL is a database that has been developed to catalog and identify protein-protein interactions of stress-response genes in subterranean and fossorial animals with Nannospalax Galili as a model organism. It is a unique database of protein-protein interactions (PPI) of stress-response genes in subterranean and fossorial animals.

In addition to this, PASTORAL can also be used to search for relevant stress-response genes and their role in specific environmental conditions, identify their corresponding protein-protein interactions, orthologs, codon usage preferences and network-related features based on protein-protein interactions.
