TAIR access for UCB researchers


Access to The Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR) after it becomes a subscription resource on April 1, 2014, will be paid on behalf of all UC Berkeley researchers by the Marian Koshland Bioscience and Natural Resources Library.

As its name implies, TAIR maintains a regularly updated database on Arabidopsis thaliana, a model organism for plant evolution, development and genetics. Data available from TAIR includes the complete genome sequence of A. thaliana, along with gene structure, gene product information, gene expression, DNA and seed stocks, genome maps, genetic and physical markers, and publications. TAIR also includes data analysis tools, as well as information for and about the Arabidopsis research community.
