Lepbase | The Lepidopteran genome database


Provides a pan-taxonomic genomic resource for the Lepidoptera. LepBase is developed from the Lepidoptera research community. It offers a high-coverage, high-quality draft assembly and annotation of the mycalesine butterfly B. anynana. This database is a useful resource for ongoing analyses of population genomics, discovery of cis-regulatory elements of wing patterning and other genes, functional genetics and functional ecology of complex gene families.
