TropGeneDB (http://tropgenedb.cirad.fr) is a web database that manages genomic, genetic, and phenotypic information on tropical crops. It is organized on a crop basis with currently nine public modules: banana, cocoa, coconut, coffee, cotton, oil palm, rice, rubber tree, and sugarcane. TropGeneDB contains data on molecular markers, quantitative trait loci (QTLs), genetic and physical maps, genotyping and phenotyping studies, and information on genetic resources (geographic origin, parentage, collection). Crop-specific web interfaces have been designed to allow quick consultations as well as personalized complex queries.
