About the Legume Information System (LIS)

The mission of LIS is to enable productive applied and basic research in the legumes by relating data from multiple crop and model species, and by helping researchers traverse among various data types.

The Legume Information System, a component of the Model Plant Initiative (MPI), is developed by the National Center for Genome Resources in cooperation with the USDA Agricultural Research Service under a Specific Cooperative Agreement.
