The Evolution of Soybean Knowledge Base (SoyKB)

Part of the Methods in Molecular Biology book series (MIMB,volume 1533)

Abstract

Soybean Knowledge Base (SoyKB) is a comprehensive all-inclusive web resource for bridging the gap between soybean translational genomics and molecular breeding. It provides information for six entities including genes/proteins, microRNAs (miRNAs)/small interfering RNAs (sRNA), metabolites, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), and plant introduction lines and traits. It has a user-friendly web interface publicly available at http://soykb.org, which integrates and presents data in an intuitive manner to the soybean researchers, breeders, and consumers. It incorporates several informatics and analytical tools for integrating and merging various multi-omics datasets.
