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.
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.
