AgBase AgBase
AgBase is a curated resource for functional analysis of agricultural plant and animal gene products including Gene Ontology annotations.

A subscription is now required to access AgBase.
The AgBase database is moving to a subscription-based funding model to support fundamental processes (such as regular updates and maintenance). We are partnering with Phoenix Bioinformatics, a non-profit organization, to implement this subscription service.

How do I keep access?
An Institutional subscription is the most common means to continue access to AgBase. Institutional subscriptions are facilitated and managed by your library, just as they would a scientific journal or software license. To consider a new resource addition, libraries require an internal request from a student or faculty member.

For pricing information and assistance with requesting institutional access, please contact

Subscription benefits will include:
  • Unlimited access to all AgBase content, data sets, and tools
  • Up-to-date functional information hand-curated from the literature
  • Customized support to do functional predictions for newly annotated gene products
Email your institution for a free one month subscription:
We are happy to offer a free one month subscription in exchange for sending an email to your library to consider an AgBase subscription. This is to make sure that you are able to have access to AgBase while we work out the subscription details with your librarian.
