HopBase: a unified resource for Humulus genomics.

David Hendrix, Steven T Hill, Ramcharan Sudarsanam, John Henning
Hop (Humulus lupulus L. var lupulus) is a dioecious plant of worldwide significance, used primarily for bittering and flavoring in brewing beer. Studies on the medicinal properties of several unique compounds produced by hop have led to additional interest from pharmacy and healthcare industries as well as livestock production as a natural antibiotic. Genomic research in hop has resulted a published draft genome and transcriptome assemblies. As research into the genomics of hop has gained interest, there is a critical need for centralized online genomic resources. To support the growing research community, we report the development of an online resource "HopBase.org." In addition to providing a gene annotation to the existing Shinsuwase draft genome, HopBase makes available genome assemblies and annotations for both the cultivar "Teamaker" and male hop accession number USDA 21422M. These genome assemblies, gene annotations, along with other common data, coupled with a genome browser and BLAST database enable the hop community to enter the genomic age. The HopBase genomic resource is accessible at http://hopbase.org and http://hopbase.cgrb.oregonstate.edu.
