Getting Started

Gene → Function

Trait → Gene

  • Find markers or QTLs around your trait of interest in your species. More [+]
  • Find those markers on a reference genome sequence. More [+]
  • Examine gene functions and expression on the reference genomes. More [+]


The mission of LIS is to facilitate discoveries and crop improvement in the legumes — critical components of global agriculture.

Please note: this "classic" site is in the process of transitioning to a new implementation based on GMOD components at legumeinfo.org

 You may use the contact form hosted at the new site to provide feedback on functionality at either site.


There are no meetings to view at this time. Please check back again soon.
