The underlying database schema is derived from the CropStoreDB schema ver.7 (Love et al 2012, doi: 10.1111/j.1744-7909.2012.01120.x ). Incorporated vocabularies include Gramene taxonomy (release 26.04.2013), plant ontology (release 19.05.2016) and trait ontology (release 12.11.2015), used under Planteome and Gramene projects licenses.
