This database for the Compositae species is a collaboration between the laboratories of
Steve Knapp at Oregon State University and Richard Michelmore at UC Davis. It was
initially funded by USDA ARS but is currently without support. We are primarily focused
on sunflower and lettuce but will expand it to include any Compositae species for which
there is sufficient data and interest. Due to funding constraints and the uncertainty of
long-term funding, we are not attempting a comprehensive database. Instead, we aim to
archive as much information as possible that is not readily available elsewhere and
provide links to access information that is obtainable from other sources. We would also
like to catalog and promote communication between labs working on Composite species.
Please forward suggestions for information that you would like to see in this database.
We anticipate upgrading from the ACEDB format to make the data more accessible as soon
as funding is available to do so.
