Provides visualization, querying tools for data mining and network exploration around Helianthus annuus. Heliagene offers a reference genome and companion resources to accelerate breeding programs. The platform focuses on the flowering time and provides precisely mapping loci that contribute to other ecologically and agriculturally important traits in wild and domesticated individuals. Tools are sorted in two categories: genomes and transcriptomes.
