Introduction to CCG Legume Bioinformatics Resource for Legume Researchers

LegumeDB is a web-based bioinformatics resource for comparative genomic analysis developed at the CCG. This curated resource enables data storage and visualization of numerous sequence analyses (and re-analyses) from diverse / customized database sets and alignment programs. Features such sequence alignments, genes and markers can be integrated and visualized in LegumeDB's genetic and physical comparative maps. LegumeDB in-silico markers can be designed spanning intron and SSR regions in genomic and cDNA based on conserved sequence alignments with a number of different legume species (contact enquiries@ccg.murdoch.edu.au for help with your analysis).

Research Aims

Integration of novel legume sequence and analyses to identify agronomically important genomic features to improve legume cultivation.
