A database framework for the comparative analysis and visualization of plant genome data. PGSB PlantsDB has been updated with new data sets and types as well as specialized tools and interfaces to address user demands for intuitive access to complex plant genome data. It is part of the EU-funded transPLANT network which facilitates the exchange, integration and virtual aggregation of plant genome data from distributed resources as well as the development of common standards and protocols.
