GWA-Portal is a web-application that allows researchers working with Arabidopsis thaliana to upload phenotypes, do Genome Wide Association Mapping (GWAS) on different genotype datasets, run meta-analysis of pleiotropy and share the results with other users or the public.

MIPS transPLANT Genome Resources Registry

MIPS maintains and frequently updates a registry of important sequence-based resources for species of agricultural and economic importance as well as model systems.

The registry is fully accessible for search, query and linking (e.g. using cross references from other data entities produced or integrated within transPLANT). It will be kept in-sync with the instance at the official transPLANT web hub.
In the near future, changes and updates to the registry can be performed by database providers themselves.


MIPS PlantsDB is a database framework for integrative and comparative plant genome research and provides data and information resources for individual plant species (including Medicago, Arabidopsis, Brachypodium, Sorghum, maize, rice, barley and wheat). Building up on that, state-of-the-art comparative genomics tools such as CrowsNest are integrated to visualize and investigate syntenic relationships between monocot genomes.

Ensembl Plants

The Ensembl Genomes project produces genome browsers for important species from across the taxonomic range, using the Ensembl software system. Five sites are now available: Ensembl Bacteria, Ensembl Fungi, Ensembl Metazoa, Ensembl Plants, and Ensembl Protists.

Ensembl Plants includes reference genome assemblies and gene builds for 15 plant species, including functional, comparative, and variation data for important crop species.


GWAPP is a GWAS web application that enables reseachers working with Arabidopsis thaliana to do Genome Wide Association Mapping (GWAS) on their own phenotypes in real time.

transPLANT Genome Browsers

We have integrated sequence associated features on the genomes of four species: rice, maize, soybean, and brassica. Features include: genes, transposons and restriction sites, clone information (BACs), genetic markers and maps.

These data are notoriously detached from genomic backbones. Overcome this by collecting and associating the diverse datasets with the genomes, making the associations available via visualisation interfaces. This involved close collaboration with the respective national and trans-national sequencing consortia to obtain key data for each species.
