SorGSD is a comprehensive database of sorghum genomic variations (SNPs and INDELs) of 289 accessions, phenotypes, practical tools, resources and critical references.
We updated the Sorghum Genome SNP Database (SorGSD) by adding new data, new features and renamed it to Sorghum Genome Science Database (SorGSD). The original version SorGSD contained SNPs from 48 sorghum accessions mapped to the reference genome BTx623 (v2.1), while the new version was expanded to 289 sorghum lines with both SNPs and small INDELs, which were aligned to the new sorghum genome assembly and annotation BTx623 (v3.1). Meanwhile, phenotypic data and panicle pictures of critical accessions were provided in the new version. We implemented new tools including ID Conversion, Homologue Search and Genome Browser for analysis. General information related to sorghum research, such as online sorghum resources and literature references, were also updated. In addition, we deployed a new database infrastructure and redesigned a new user interface as one of the Genome Variation Map databases.
