Interpretive Summary: GrainGenes, the international database for genetic and genomic data about Triticeae species (e.g. wheat, barley, and rye) and Avena sativa (oat), was extensively redesigned in 2004. As a result it is now much easier to use, both for getting a quick answer to a simple question and for mining the data for new information. Some of the improvements have been designed specifically to address breeders' data needs. Most of these involve tools for identifying markers and alternative markers for desired traits. Another area under development is genotypic data on germplasm lines (their alleles of molecular markers), correlatable to phenotypic data for agronomic and quality traits.
