The Triticeae Toolbox

The Triticeae Toolbox (T3) webportal hosts data generated by the Triticeae Coordinated Agricultural Project (CAP), funded by the National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). T3 contains SNP, phenotypic, and pedigree data from wheat and barley germplasm in the Triticeae CAP integrating rapidly expanding DNA marker and sequence data with traditional phenotypic data.

Data from: Generation and analysis of blueberry transcriptome sequences from leaves, developing fruit, and flower buds from cold acclimation through deacclimation

There has been increased consumption of blueberries in recent years fueled in part because of their many recognized health benefits. Blueberry fruit is very high in anthocyanins, which have been linked to improved night vision, prevention of macular degeneration, anti-cancer activity, and reduced risk of heart disease. Very few genomic resources have been available for blueberry, however. Further development of genomic resources like expressed sequence tags (ESTs), molecular markers, and genetic linkage maps could lead to more rapid genetic improvement. Marker-assisted selection could be used to combine traits for climatic adaptation with fruit and nutritional quality traits.

The Porcine Translational Research Database

This database contains functional information on genes commonly studied in humans, pigs, and rodents, including more than 2,300 sequenced at DGIL. Each entry has been manually-annotated and is linked to other porcine databases as well as Homologene, InnateDb and Gene Ontology. 


Ricebase ( is an integrative genomic database for rice (Oryza sativa) with an emphasis on combining datasets in a way that maintains the key links between past and current genetic studies. Ricebase includes DNA sequence data, gene annotations, nucleotide variation data and molecular marker fragment size data.

Musa Germplasm Information System

The Musa Germplasm Information System (MGIS) contains key information on Musa germplasm diversity, including passport data, botanical classification, morpho-taxonomic descriptors, molecular studies, plant photographs and GIS information on 4616 accessions managed in 21 collections around the world, making it the most extensive source of information on banana genetic resources.


Data from: Genomic analyses of dominant US clonal lineages of Phytophthora infestans reveals a shared ancestry for US11 and US18 and a lack of recently shared ancestry for all other US lineages

The populations of the potato and tomato late blight pathogen, Phytophthora infestans, in the US are well known for emerging repeatedly as novel clonal lineages. These successions of dominant clones have historically been named US1 through US24, in order of appearance, since their first characterization using molecular markers. Hypothetically, these lineages can emerge by descent from prior lineages or as novel, independent lineages.

GrainGenes, the genome database for small-grain crops

GrainGenes is a popular repository for information about genetic maps, mapping probes and primers, genes, alleles and QTLs for the following crops: wheat, barley, rye and oat. Documentation includes such data as primer sequences, polymorphism descriptions, genotype and trait scoring data, experimental protocols used, and photographs of marker polymorphisms, disease symptoms and mutant phenotypes. These data, curated with the help of many members of the research community, are integrated with sequence and bibliographic records selected from external databases and results of BLAST searches of the ESTs.
