A database which offers gene annotation of Hevea brasiliensis. The rubber tree is the major commercial source of natural rubber. The transcriptome was sequenced from vegetative shoot apex yielding 2,311,497 reads. Clustering and assembly of the reads produced a total of 113,313 unique sequences, comprising 28,387 isotigs and 84,926 singletons. Also, 17,819 EST-SSRs were identified from the data set. Hevea brasiliensis belongs to the Euphorbiaceae family.
