Pinus Portal provides access to various databases regarding genetic and genomic resources and information. It includes also a dynamic user interface allowing the submission of complex queries across all data bases (Global Search). Additionally a static section of the portal is devoted to general information of the genus Pinus.
Pinus Portal is plugged on the Evoltree eLab (electronic Lab) cache system developed by Dieter Kopecky and Johanna Schmidt from the Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH. It was constructed within Evoltree (http://www.evoltree.eu/) a large EU-funded Network of Excellence, by members of BIOGECO (Audrey Jacques-Gustave, Antoine Kremer, Thierry Labbé, Melina Millox, Christophe Plomion, Frédéric Raspail, Jean-Paul Soularue, François Ehrenmann).
We acknowledge the contributions of biogeco staff and other colleagues who populated the databases by sharing their data and/or programms (Emilie Chancerel, Hélène Lagraulet, Christophe Plomion, Jeffrey Endelman).
