The current implementation of the PlaBi dataBase focuses on seven crop plants which includes sugar beet, grapevine, rapeseed (canola), potato, maize, barley and bread wheat. The model plant Arabidopsis thaliana is also included as this model plant is used as a reference.
The portal provides the latest JBrowser genome browser implementation for all these plants (except barley and wheat) which allows visualization of genetic data from chromosome to gene level.
For all protein-coding genes of the seven crop plants and the one model plant the protein sequence, the cDNA sequence and the genomic sequence (including ~1800 bp of the 5'-UTR and ~300 bp of the 3'-UTR) is available. In addition, conserved protein domains as specified by the PFAM 31.0 database are shown.
Protein family data
The protein data from the seven crop plants and one model plant have been clustered using the Markov Cluster Algorithm (MCL). This data is then used in the database to allow the users to find orthologous proteins in the eight plants currently available.
The portal includes an interactive display of all plants which have had their genomes sequences to date. Additional data such as publication data, genome size and a link to the paper is provided for all genomes (currently ~100 plant genomes).
This project Pflanzen-Primärdatenbank PPD was funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The BMBF also funded the prior project GABI Primärdatenbank.
