About AlliumDB

The genus Allium belongs to the botanical family Amaryllidaceae and includes economically important crops such as onion, garlic, bunching onion, and leek, that are used as vegetables, spices, and traditional medicines. However, the large sizes of Allium genomes hamper the genetic dissection of agronomically important traits and molecular breeding. AlliumDB as a functional genomics hub, integrates a large amount of genomic, resequencing, transcriptomic and phenotypic data. AlliumDB will facilitate future scientific research and assist with the molecular breeding of Allium crops.
