Web Systems

IC4R Sequences

  • Description: Main site for IC4R project, storing genome annotation data for rice sequences.
  • Availability:

Plant Homolog

  • Description: A database for storing and browsing the homolog gene groups of 17 plant species.
  • Availability:


  • Description: A cloud platform for biological data storage, analysis and sharing. It integrates data and analysis tools in one stop; data is stored in a distributed manner and computations are run in parallel in multiple nodes. By adding more nodes into the cluster, it is capable of accommodating the growing needs of storage and computation.
