Abstract

The National Agricultural Biotechnology Information Center (NABIC) plays a leading role in maintaining a database of information for agricultural plants and microbes. Since 2002, the NABIC has constructed an agricultural biology-based computational infrastructure and has provided comprehensive agricultural biological research information in Korea. Its major functions are focused on developing bioinformatics tools for investigating agricultural genomes and providing a database that integrates information from multiple plants and microbes. This new genome-based database provides useful information through a user-friendly web interface that allows analysis of genome infrastructure and searching of various resources.
