Development of Soybean Knowledge Base (SoyKB), a multi-omics data integration web resource for bridging molecular breeding and translational genomics in Glycine Max
Metadata[+] Show full item record
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] Many genome-scale data are available in soybean (Glycine Max) including genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics datasets, together with growing knowledge of soybean in gene, microRNAs, pathways, and phenotypes. This represents rich and resourceful information which can provide valuable insights, if mined in an innovative and integrative manner. To achieve this we have developed Soybean Knowledge Base (SoyKB), a comprehensive all-inclusive web resource for soybean translational genomics and breeding. SoyKB handles the management and integration of soybean genomics and multi-omics data along with gene function annotations, biological pathway and trait information. It has many useful tools including Missouri Breeding Program, gene family search, multiple gene/metabolite analysis, motif analysis tool, protein 3D structure viewer and Cyber Studio system. It has a user-friendly web interface together with genome browser and pathway viewer, which display data in an intuitive manner to the soybean researchers, breeders and consumers. SoyKB can be publicly accessed at http://soykb.org.
Access is limited to the campus of the University of Missouri-Columbia.
