Welcome to Dodder Genome Database!
The Coffee Genome Hub is an integrated web-based database providing centralized access to coffee community genomics, genetics and breeding data and analysis tools to facilitate basic, translational and applied research in coffee. Data available are the complete genome sequence of C. canephora along with gene structure, gene product information, metabolism, gene families, transcriptomics (ESTs, RNA-Seq), genetic markers and genetic maps. The hub provides also tools for easy querying, visualizing and downloading research data.
This project is being built using the open-source Tripal database infrastructure. It is developed by IRD and Cirad and supported by the South Green Bioinformatics platform.
With over 2.25 billion cups consumed every day, coffee is one of the most important beverage crops in the world. Coffee is cultivated across more than 11 million hectares (ha) in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Small stakeholders with less than 5 ha account for about 70% of world coffee production, and more than 80 million people depend on the crop for their income. All Coffea species are perennial woody bushes or trees that differ greatly in morphology, size and ecological adaptation.
