There are a lot of genome information for you to browse, and several tools to search genes, expression etc. More details and introduction of this site are available at "About CGRD" page. Meanwhile, the Tutorials of how to use it are on "Tutorials" page. All pages were tested on Chrome browser(Version 41.0), Firefox browser(Version 37) and Safari browser(Version 7.1). The CGRD is not supported well in low version IE browser. You can try above browsers when CGRD does not work well in your own browser.

1. Why the Gossypium barbadense genome data is not available in CGRD?

The paper of Gossypium barbadense genome sequencing is just submitted. So the data will be available as soon as the paper is accepted, especially, the bulk download of Gossypium barbadense genome will be ok on the FTP server.

2. When the Gossypium hirsutum L. genome data will be available in CGRD?

As you know, two genomes are published on the Nature Biotechnology at 04-20 2015. The corresponding annotation data is available on CGP(Cotton Genome Project) and CRI(Cotton Research Institute) We will process those data and make them available on CGRD as soon as possiable.

3. There are two genomes of Gossypium raimondii, which one I should use in my research?

As you see, the annotation data in G.raimondii (JGI, 2012) is more adequate, which contains alternative transcripts of each gene. So the genes in G.raimondii (JGI, 2012) genome were calculated gene expression, were processed in gene family finding, were involved in gene collinearity and genome microsynten blocks.

4. Which genome browser I should use to view the annotation information of cotton genome, GBrowse or JBrowse?

Both the GBrowse and JBrowse are the projects of GMOD(Generic Model Organism Database). In the intrduction page of GBrowse, it said that "GBrowse is a combination of database and interactive web pages for manipulating and displaying annotations on genomes", while in JBrowse, it said that "JBrowse is a genome browser with a fully dynamic AJAX interface, being developed as the eventual successor to GBrowse. It is very fast and scales well to large datasets. JBrowse is javascript-based and does almost all of its work directly in the user's web browser, with minimal requirements for the server.". So the functions of GBrowse and JBrowse are similar, but the JBrowse is recommended because of the technology advantage and response speed of JBrowse.
