Rice (Oryza sativa) is not only an important model organism for monocot plants and cereals but also the most widely consumed staple food for a large part of the world's human population. With the increasing volume of various types of omics data, an integrated database incorporating rice omics data is of great significance for the rice research community.
Information Commons for Rice (IC4R) is a rice knowledgebase based on an extensible and sustainable architecture that achieves data integration through community-contributed modules. IC4R is designed for scalability and sustainability, integrating data from remote resources through web APIs and featuring collaborative integration of rice data from multiple committed modules and low costs for database update and maintenance.
Currently, IC4R committed projects include: (see more)
