Chloroplast Genome Database (CpGDB) is user friendly, web-based, freely available and dynamic relational database which provides a platform for researchers to search and download complete chloroplast genome sequences, individual gene sequences and feature records of plant species belonging to same or different families of spermatophytes. Presently, the database consists of genome sequences, individual gene sequences and feature records of chloroplast genomes of 3823 plant species belonging to 1527 genera from 256 families, which will be updated regularly with the availability of new sequences at NCBI. Extensive data mining of feature records from GenBank files, uniform nomenclature for majority of genes, enriched intron/exon feature records makes CpGDB a valuable resource for studies in chloroplast genomics while complementing existing chloroplast databases.
