A database which offers gene annotation of Jatropha curcas, also known as Barbados nut, purging nut or physic nut. Jatropha curcas is currently attracting much attention as a plant with high potential for biofuel plantations, because of its unique characteristics like high seed oil content and easy propagation. With the rapid advance in molecular research of Jatropha curcas, there emerged a mass of large-scale genome, transcriptome and proteome analyses, which were applied for decoding the molecular network of Jatropha curcas. Jatropha curcas belongs to the Euphorbiaceae family.
