Q1. What is the CGDB?
Answer: The CGDB is the first database oriented in hosting omics information of
Coriandrum sativum, set up by Fulei Nie, Dr. Xiyin Wang and Dr. Xiaoming Song
From the Center for Genomics and Computational Biology, North China University
of Science and Technology, Tangshan, Hebei, China.
Q2. What data and information does the CGDB contain?
Answer: CGDB aims to be the leading database for C. sativum omics, including
Genome, transcriptome and metabolome. Currently,
the CGDB contained significant search tools and available dataset for researcher
to study gene annotation, comparative genomics, gene family, gene expression,
gene collinearity, and metabolic regulatory of C. sativum. We also implemented
Basic Local Alignment Search Tool, which was very convenient for comparative analyses
among Apiaceae species. CGDB also includes several additional pages for bulk data download,
detailed user manual and data integration information. This current CGDB is Version 1.0,
and we will update it continuously with new dataset or tools.
Q3. What is the CGDB supported?
Answer: This database was funded by the projects from Xiaoming Song, including National
Natural Science Foundation of China (31801856), Hebei Province Higher Education
Youth Talents Program(BJ2018016), and Natural Science Foundation of Hebei
Q4. What is the structure of CGDB?
Answer: CGDB is a relatively user-friendly online platform. A list of functions/tools were
offered, including Home, Browser, Tools, Search, Download, Help, and Contact Us.
Users could find information easily through this menu.
Q5. How can I cite CGDB?
Answer: If you use any data, function or tool of the CGDB, please cite related
papers in homepages.
Q6.. Can I submit my data to CGDB?
Answer: We strongly encourage users to submit their data either genome or
transcriptome to CGDB. Please contact Dr. Song or Fulei Nie for
Q7. Can I download data from CGDB?
Answer: Yeah, welcome to use any dataset for research purpose without any
restrictions. For commercial purposes, please contact us before you use
Q8. Do I need a CGDB account to access data?
