Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L. (Moench), is an important vegetable crop, rich in dietary fibers, amino acids and
vitamins. Bhendi yellow vein mosaic disease caused by monopartite Bhendi yellow vein mosaic virus (BYVMV) of genus Begomovirus (family Geminiviridae) has become a
threat for successful okra cultivation throughout the world as most of the previously released varieties/hybrids have lost their resistance to this virus. Okra is
one of the non-model plants where information on genomics and key biological processes is limited. Genomics tools like RNA-seq for transcriptome analysis have emerged
as a powerful tool to identify novel transcript/gene sequences in non-model plants, like okra. Till date, only few transcriptome studies have been reported in okra,
but to the best of our knowledge no comparative transcriptome study for BYVMV disease have been reported so far.
OYVMVTDb: Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) Yellow Vein Mosaic Virus Transcriptome Database is an online relational database of okra transcriptome, from BYVMV disease resistant i.e. DOV-66 (Pusa Bhindi-5) and BYVMD susceptible parent i.e. Pusa Sawani. OYVMVTDb is based on “three-tier architecture” having, client-, middle- and database tier, that catalogues the information pertaining to assembled transcripts, differentially expressed genes (transcripts) and the pathways they are involved, transcription factors, putative SSR markers, their primers and variants (SNPs, MNPs and InDels). All these information are in the form of tables in MySQL in the database tier. For the user queries fetching and execution, scripting in PHP has been done in the middle tier. For database browsing, web pages are developed in client tier. This resource is freely available for academic use at http://backlin.cabgrid.res.in/oyvmvtdb SSR markers and variants identified from the differential transcriptome data will be used to identify the candidate genes/transcripts for BYVMV disease.
