Welcome to Jatropha curcas Database
Jatropha curcas is currently attracting much attention as a plant with high potential for biofuel production, because of its unique characteristics like high seed oil content and the composition of the seed oil suitable for biodiesel and bio-jet fuel production. In recent years, there have emerged a mass of large-scale genome and transcriptome analyses of J. curcas. How to availably integrate and analyze these high-throughput data is crucial for further functional genomics research on J. curcas.
By establishing pipelines for processing high-throughput transcriptome sequencing data , gene function annotation, and gene co-expression profiling, we systematically integrated and analyzed a series of J. curcas transcriptome data including both published and in-house (in total 114 runs). Based on all these data, we constructed the Jatropha curcas DataBase (JCDB, http://jcdb.xtbg.ac.cn), which is freely accessible to the J. curcas research community.
The JCDB data include general gene information (such as genomic coordinates, sequence), gene functional annotation (such as GO, KEGG, PFAM, InterProScan), and gene expression heatmap and gene network. In JCDB, We also provided the tools for browsing, searching and download against all data, as well as online ID conversion, gene network construction, BLAST and Genome Browser service. As the first comprehensive knowledge database for J. curcas, we believe that JCDB will offer an important platform for further study on the biofuel plant J. curcas.
