Pulse Crop Database Resources

Metadata Updated: March 30, 2024

Genomic, Genetic and Breeding Resources for Pulse Crop Improvement. Crops supported include Adzuki bean, Bambara bean, Chickpea, Common bean, Cowpea, Faba bean, Lentil, Lupin, Pea, Pigeon pea, Vetch, and others. The Pulse Crop Database (PCD), formerly the Cool Season Food Legume Database (CSFL), is being developed by the Main Bioinformatics Laboratory at Washington State University in collaboration with the USDA-ARS Grain Legume Genetics and Physiology Research Unit, the USDA-ARS Plant Germplasm Introduction and Testing Unit, the USA Dry Pea and Lentil Council, Northern Pulse Growers and allied scientists in the US and across the world, to serve as a resource for Genomics-Assisted Breeding (GAB). GAB offers tools to identify genes related to traits of interest among other methods to optimize plant breeding efficiency and research, by providing relevant genomic, genetic and breeding information and analysis. Therefore, tools such as JBrowse and MapViewer can be found in this database, as well as key resources to provide the access to the annotation of available transcriptome data, helping pulse breeders and researchers to succeed in their programs. Resources in this dataset:Resource Title: Pulse Crop Database Resources. File Name: Web Page, url: Resources include data submission and download, and search by gene and transcript, germplasm, map, marker, publication, QTL, sequence, megasearch, and trait/descriptor. A User Manual describes how to access data and use the tools on the Pulse Crop Database. Tools supported: BLAST, JBrowse, PathwayCyc, MapViewer, and Synteny Viewer
