The Arabidopsis Genome Resource (AGR) now contains over 180,000
Arabidopsis sequences taken from the EMBL database. New sequences are
added to AGR on a daily basis. Additionally AGR contains nearly 200,000
protein sequences from the SwissProt and TREMBL databases.
As well as this wealth of Arabidopsis thaliana information there are
several hundred nucleotide sequences from other Arabidopsis species and
nearly 25,000 protein sequences from higher plant species.
Recent improvements mean that many database records now link to
external databases such as PubMed, InterPro, Pfam, Mendel-GFDb, etc.
Furthermore many sequences are directly connected to entries in the
NASC stock catalogue allowing you to easily order stocks.
All of the information in AGR can be quickly and easily searched from the
AGR web page:
Alternatively, you can BLAST search against sequences in AGR (or any of
the other 32 databases held by UK CropNet) by using our BLAST server at:
All comments/criticisms/feedback about AGR are especially welcome!
