The Brassica database (BRAD) is a web-based database of genetic data at the whole genome scale for important Brassica crops. It now provides several datasets, including the complete Brassica A genome sequence from B. rapa (Chiifu-401), derived from de novo assembly of sequence scaffolds using second-generation sequencing technologies. Also included are predicted genes and associated annotations (InterPro, KEGG2, SwissProt), B. rapa genes orthologous to those in Arabidopsis thaliana, as well as genetic markers and maps of B. rapa. BRAD is continuously updated and B. rapa transcriptome data will be available in the near future. We also accept submission of genetic and genomic data of Brassica crops from the research community.

BRAD is open to the public with NO registration.
BRAD may not be available on 02.07.2015 and 02.08.2015 because of network maintenance.
This website will not be available on 01.17.2015.
BRAD may not be available temporarily these several days due to electronic maintainance (06.17.2013).
