Welcome to the Genome Database for Vaccinium
Vaccinum is an ancient genus of the family Ericaceae. It's members include blueberry (V. corymbosum, angustifolium and virgatum), cranberry (V. macrocarpon) and lignonberry (V. vitis-idaea). The Genome Database for Vaccinium is being developed to house and integrate genomic, genetic and breeding data for blueberry, cranberry and other Vaccinium sp. This will include the blueberry genome being sequenced by North Carolina State University, and annotated transcripts, traits, maps and markers being generated by Vaccinium researchers. GDV is implemented using Chado and Drupal (Tripal) and will include public and private sites to meet individual research group needs.
