GrainGenes is a genetic database for Triticeae, oats, and sugarcane, being assembled as part of the United States Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Library's Plant Genome Program. GrainGenes includes information on genetic maps, genes, alleles, genetic markers, phenotypic data, quantitative trait loci studies, experimental protocols and publications. The database can be queried by text searches, browsing, Boolean queries, MySQL commands, or by using pre-made queries created by the curators. Users can also contribute their own data.
