About the Legume Information System
The mission of LIS is to enable productive applied and basic research in the legumes by relating data from multiple crop and model species, and by helping researchers traverse among various data types.
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.
The Legume Information System, a component of the Model Plant Initiative (MPI), is developed by the National Center for Genome Resources in cooperation with the USDA Agricultural Research Service under a Specific Cooperative Agreement.
