BeanGenes - A Phaseolus/Vigna spp. Genome DatabaseEntry ID: usda.AGIS.BeanGenes
Abstract: [adapted from &about Beangenes&]
BeanGenes contains information relevant to Phaseolus and Vigna
The BeanGenes project was funded by the USDA/ARS Plant Genome project
through the SoyBase project administered by Dr. Randy Shoemaker
(USDA/ARS, Ames, Iowa).
BeanGenes contains several classes of information. All of the
published molecular maps of P. vulgaris are represented in the
... database. These include the restriction fragment length polymorphism
(RFLP) map developed by Dr. Eduardo Vallejos at the University of
Florida (Vallejos et al., 1992) and the RFLP map developed by Dr. Paul
Gepts at the University of California, Davis (Gepts et al., 1993). The
combined RFLP and randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) map
developed by Dr. Michel Dron at the University of Paris, Sud can also
be accessed. Dr. Nevin Young of the University of Minnesota has
provided RFLP maps of mung bean (Vigna radiata) and cowpea
Associated with each molecular map are loci and probe information. The
loci information describes the probes or RAPDs used to define the
locus, and the probe data provides specific information about a given
BeanGenes also contains all the gene information that was compiled by
Dr. Mark Bassett at the University of Florida. This is identical to
the recent published list (Bassett, 1993). All published references to
the genes are also included.
The BeanGenes database can be accessed from the North Dakota server.
This requires you to have X-Windows capability, knowledge of the ACEDB
software, and a login id. If you would like to have an account on the
