Publicly released: Wed 27 Jan 2016 at 1300 AEDT | Wed 27 Jan 2016 at 1500 NZDT Plant and Cell Physiology CropPAL, a recently launched database of valuable protein information for economically important crop plants will be a significant resource for crop improvement and global food security. In order to improve crop plants to cope with rising temperatures, drought, flooding and salinity, protein function and location must be known. As an open access research tool where protein location information about barley, wheat, rice and maize proteins is collated, cropPAL will assist plant researchers, biotechnology companies and the crop breeding industry and enable more targeted breeding of crop species in the future.
