MANGO RESOURCES INFORMATION SYSTEM: AN OPEN ACCESS PORTRAYAL OF PHENOTYPICAL, GENETIC AND CHEMICAL INFORMATION ON MANGO

S. Rajan, T.K. Sahu, L.P. Yadava
Mango Resources Information System was developed for management of phen¬otypic, genetic, molecular, chemical and other available information on indigenous and exotic mango cultivars. The information system is enriched with 682 accessions with the details of fruit, leaf and other characteristics. It has a collection of 26 expressed sequence tag (EST) and 285 nucleotide sequences present in mango varieties which contains complete and partial genomic sequences having the molecular type, generally genomic DNAs, m-RNAs and unassigned DNAs. The protein information section is enriched with a collection of proteins present in different cultivars of mango. A user friendly web interface is designed to search the proteins, ESTs, nucleotides, chemicals, field gene bank holdings and cultivars.
A description of various chemical components of different Mangifera species and cultivars are included in this information system. Besides all these, published information and links, including research papers, reports, proceedings, journals, authors etc. from 1972 to 2008 are present in its references section. An interactive discussion forum is developed to discuss major problems and solutions related to mango. The Information System is based on relational database modeling with records in interconnected tables. The information system is developed in MySQL on a Linux Platform. The information system is web enabled by Hyper Text Markup Language designing the web page and Preprocessor Hypertext (PHP 5.2.1) as a server scripting language for insertion and retrieval of information the related MySQL database management system. Java script is used for client side applications and customizations. As the system provides quick access to information; serve as a quick method for extracting information from a massive data set. In case of mango varieties, information systems on various aspects like genetic resource information, molecular data, protein, nucleotides, chemical constituents etc., are vital from breeding and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) point of view.
