Exploring the structure of genomes and analyzing their evolution is essential to understanding the ecological adaptation of organisms. However, with the large amounts of data being produced by next-generation sequencing, computational challenges arise in terms of storage, search, sharing, analysis and visualization. This is particularly true with regards to studies of genomic variation, which are currently lacking scalable and user-friendly data exploration solutions.

Banana Genome Hub

The Banana Genome Hub centralises databases of genetic and genomic data for the musa acuminata crop Hub developed by Cirad and Bioversity and supported by the South Green Bioinformatics platform. Data available are the complete genome sequence along with gene structure, gene product information, metabolism, gene families, transcriptomics (ESTs, RNA-Seq), genetic markers (SSR, DArT, SNPs) and genetic maps.

OryGenesDB is a database developed for rice reverse genetics. OryGenesDB contains FSTs (flanking sequence tags) of various mutagens and functional genomics data collected from both international insertion collections and the literature.

Insertion mutants of rice genes are catalogued by Flanking Sequence Tag (FST) information that can be readily accessed by this database.

TropGeneDB is a component of the South Green Bioinformatics Platform for the management of genetic, molecular and phenotypic data on tropical crop species. The most common data stored in TropGeneDB are molecular markers, QTLs (Quantitative Trait Loci), genetic and physical maps, genetic diversity, phenotypic diversity studies, and information on genetic resources (geographic origin, parentage, collection). TropGeneDB is organized on a crop basis with currently nine public modules (banana, cocoa, coconut, coffee, cotton, oil palm, rice, rubber tree, sugarcane).

This project is mainly supported by CIRAD core funding.


SNiPlay is a web-based tool for SNP and polymorphism analysis. From sequencing traces, alignment or allelic data given as input, it detects or extracts SNP and insertion/deletion events. In a second step, it sends sequences and allelic data into an integrative pipeline
