Comparative transcriptomics for mangrove species: an expanding resource.

We present here the Mangrove Transcriptome Database (MTDB), an integrated, web-based platform providing transcript information from all 28 mangrove species for which information is available. Sequences are annotated, and when possible, GO clustered and assigned to KEGG pathways, making MTDB a valuable resource for approaching mangrove or other extremophile biology from the transcriptomic level. As one example outlining the potential of MTDB, we highlight the analysis of mangrove microRNA (miRNA) precursor sequences, miRNA target sites, and their conservation and divergence compared with model plants. MTDB is available at .
