Abstract

We have recently developed a database, pDAWG, focused on information related to plant cell walls. Currently, pDAWG contains seven complete plant genomes, 12 complete algal genomes, along with computed information for individual proteins encoded in these genomes of the following types: (a) carbohydrate active enzyme (CAZy) family information when applicable; (b) phylogenetic trees of cell wall-related CAZy family proteins; (c) protein structure models if available; (d) physical and predicted interactions among proteins; (e) subcellular localization; (f) Pfam domain information; and (g) homology-based functional prediction. A querying system with a graphical interface allows a user to quickly compose information of different sorts about individual genes/proteins and to display the composite information in an intuitive manner, facilitating comparative analyses and knowledge discovery about cell wall genes. pDAWG can be accessed at http://csbl1.bmb.uga.edu/pDAWG/.
