Currently available genomes



PLAZA is an access point for plant comparative genomics centralizing genomic data produced by different genome sequencing initiatives. Currently, it integrates plant sequence data and comparative genomics methods and provides an online platform allowing to perform evolutionary analyses and data mining within the green plant lineage (Viridiplantae).

Please use the search functions in the menu bar to search for your favorite gene(s) or use the different Analyze tools to explore gene families and genomic homology.

The PLAZA project receives the majority of its funding through FWO and IWT. The credits page includes a full list of of funding bodies. Non-academic users should contact us for a commercial license.
