Quercus Portal

BIOGECO hosts the Quercus portal which is the Platform of European genomic and genetic data in oaks, and other genera of the Fagaceae. Quercus Portal provides access to various databases regarding genetic and genomic resources and information:

  • Genetic maps of Quercus and Castanea species
  • QTL maps of Quercus and Castanea species
  • Passport data of provenances and provenance tests of oaks installed in Europe
  • Geographic distribution of allelic (haplotypic) frequencies and diversity statistics of Quercus, Castanea, Fagus and Nothofagus species worldwide
  • EST libraries and sequences
  • Microsatellites data of Quercus, Castanea, Fagus, Lithocarpus
  • Candidate genes and SNPs of adaptive related traits
  • Fossil records of Quercus

It contains also a special section devoted to general information of the genus Quercus. Quercus portal was constructed within EVOLTREE and is currently administrated by Francois Ehrenmann (

Quercus Portal is plugged on the Evoltree eLab (electronic Lab) cache system developed by Dieter Kopecky and Johanna Schmidt from the Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH. 

Pinus Portal

Similar to the Quercus Portal, a web resource of genomic and genetic data is now available. It has the same architecture than the Quercus Portal. For the time being the following data are available:

  • Genetic maps of Pinus species
  • Geographic distribution of allelic (haplotypic) frequencies and diversity statistics of Pinus species , but also of other woody gymnosperms.
  • EST libraries and sequences

Pinus Portal is also plugged on the Evoltree eLab (electronic Lab) cache system installed Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH. The eLab comprises data bases of other genera hosted by other European institutes, that are individually freely accessible. The eLab offers also a research engine (with restricted access to EVOLTREE members) that allows to make queries across all data bases.
