A resource providing data on bioentities and their associated ontology terms for Plant Biology. The database provides access to ontology-based annotations of genes, phenotypes and germplasms from about 90 plant species. A number of internal and external ontologies are used to annotate the biological data available from this resource.

DES-TOMATO is a topic-specific literature exploration system developed to allow the exploration of information related to tomato. The information provided in DES-TOMATO is obtained through the text-mining of available scientific literature, namely full-length articles in PubMed Central and titles and abstracts in PubMed.
