An online database system of cross-referenced information and resources on Brassicaceae taxonomy, systematics, evolution, traits and germplasm resources. Biological material and resources, either collected directly in the wild or held in germplasm collections, are often taxonomically misidentified and are very rarely further characterized and documented. BrassiBase will close these various gaps and provide the full potential of research focusing on the adaptive characters and character trait evolution in the Brassicaceae.
