Response to #ShutDownSTEM In sympathy with global outrage triggered by the murder of George Floyd, NCGR joined the world scientific community on June 10 to step back from research activities and reflect upon our responsibility to strengthen our society through commitment to fighting racism and promoting diversity and inclusion in our work. We will continue to engage with the local community through a variety of outreach initiatives, and will expand our efforts to make STEM education, training and employment accessible to people regardless of gender, race, creed, color or orientation.
Response to COVID-19 The NCGR workforce has gone to work-from-home operations, but business is continuing as usual. Receipt of mail and parcels may be delayed but other forms of communication are being used normally.

Legume Information System

LIS contains agronomically useful information in legume species, including genome sequences, genetic maps, genes, gene families, and mapped traits. The "legumeinfo" site makes use of several open-source projects (Intermine, Tripal, Chado, GBrowse, JBrowse, and many others), facilitating more efficient collaboration with other research groups using and developing these tools.
