Abstract

As one of the four major Chinese carps of important economic value, the grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idellus) has attracted increasing attention from the scientific community. Recently, the draft genome has been released as a milestone in research of grass carp. In order to facilitate the utilization of these genome data, we developed the grass carp genome database (GCGD). GCGD provides visual presentation of the grass carp genome along with annotations and amino acid sequences of predicted protein-coding genes. Other related genetic and genomic data available in this database include the genetic linkage maps, microsatellite genetic markers (i.e. Short Sequence Repeats, SSRs), and some selected transcriptomic datasets. A series of tools have been integrated into GCGD for visualization, analysis and retrieval of data, e.g. JBrowse for navigation of genome annotations, BLAST for sequence alignment, EC2KEGG for comparison of metabolic pathways, IDConvert for conversion of terms across databases and ReadContigs for extraction of sequences from the grass carp genome.
