Database Description

The database PoMaMo (Potato Maps and More) was established within the German Plant Genome Project "GABI". It harbours to date information on molecular maps of all twelve potato chromosomes with about 1000 mapped elements, sequence data, putative gene functions, results from BLAST analysis, SNP and InDel information from different diploid and tetraploid potato genotypes, publication references, and links to other public databases like NCBI or SGN for example. PoMaMo is accessible via the website https://gabi.rzpd.de/PoMaMo.html.

PoMaMos' central search and visualisation interface GreenCards enables the user to browse and search for a comprehensive set of potato genome data. GreenCards allows queries for example by genotype, marker or sequence name, sequence accession number or putative gene functions.
Molecular maps are interactively displayed by the Java servlet tool YAMB ("Yet Another Map Browser"). Maps can be zoomed in and out and detailed information about mapped elements can be obtained by opening a GreenCards window. Via the networking of YAMB and the text-based search and visualization interface GreenCards, it is easy to switch from the map display to the GreenCards view, which provides detailed information on objects of interests or vice versa.


PoMaMo was developed within the project GABI-Primary Database funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (grant: 0312272 and 0313112).
