Plant DNA C-values Database

Related Databases


There is an increasing number of databases for different aspects of plant genomes. However, while these databases provide for example information on chromosome numbers, latest genetic maps, related references, germplasm collections, conferences etc. of specific plant species or families, they do not contain any information on DNA amounts in plants.
