The Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR)

The Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR) collects information and maintains a database of genetic and molecular biology data for Arabidopsis thaliana, a widely used model plant. TAIR is managed by the nonprofit Phoenix Bioinformatics Corporation and collaborates with the Arabidopsis Biological Resource Center (ABRC). The ABRC's mission is to acquire, preserve and distribute seed and DNA resources that are useful to the Arabidopsis research community.

The data in TAIR can be searched, viewed, and analyzed with online tools. The datasets can also be downloaded. In addition, pages on news, information on the Arabidopsis Genome Initiative (AGI), Arabidopsis lab protocols, and useful links are provided.


Access is available directly from this page by connecting to the TAIR website. You'll be prompted to log in to MUSE as necessary.
