Provides some information and resources related to long terminal repeat (LTR)-retrotransposons in rice genome. The aims of the RetrOryza database are to (i) assemble a comprehensive dataset of LTR-retrotransposons that includes not only abundant elements, but also low copy number elements. (ii) provide an interface to efficiently access the resources stored in the database. This interface should also allow the community to annotate these elements. (iii) provide a means for identifying LTR-retrotransposons inserted near genes.
