UK CropNet are pleased to announce the launch of our latest
database: CropSeqDB - a sequence database for UK crop plants.
This database has been created for two main reasons:
i) To act as a repository of sequence information for UK crop
ii) To complement our existing Arabidopsis database (AGR) by linking
sequences in CropSeqDB to their likely Arabidopsis homologue in AGR.
As a UK crop plant database, CropSeqDB only contains information for
species detailed in the MAFF National Listing of UK crop species (which
includes cereals, vegetables, oil & fibre plants, and fodder crops).
CropSeqDB currently contains nearly half a million sequences (taken from
the EMBL database) representing over 150 species. Likely Arabidopsis
homologues have been identified for about 70% of these sequences.
CropSeqDB can be searched by EMBL accession, gene name, gene product, etc.
and all sequences with homologies are linked directly to protein entries
in the AGR database. A BLAST server is also provided.
