Paithumbase is an established database for identifying the phenotypic variations of the mungbean germplasm accessions preserved in the National Pulses Research Centre, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University. This database provides information on both quantitative and qualitative traits of the mungbean germplasm. The database architecture was built with a GUI interface, developed in PHP and HTML as front end and MySQL as the backend language. It is promising that this database will provide valuable biological and bioinformatics resources for plant physiologists and geneticists to dissect the major phenotypic traits to develop highly adapted plant material to sustain future breeding programs. The plant breeders can easily decide the choice of the parental lines involved in the varietal improvement programs by using this database. Paithumbase is available for public access at http://www. tnaugenomics. com/paithumbase/.
