Interpretive Summary: Initiated in 2012, CottonGen (https://www.cottongen.org) is an online community database providing access to integrated peer-reviewed cotton genomic, genetic, and breeding data, and analysis tools. The repository in CottonGen contains colleague, gene, genome, genotype, germplasm, map, marker, metabolites, phenotype, publications, qtl, species, transcriptome, and trait data curated by the CottonGen team. Tools include a genetic map viewer, genome browser, synteny viewer, metabolite pathways browser, sequence retrieval, BLAST, and breeding information management system (BIMS). A suite of search tools provides intuitive querying of all major data types. CottonGen is home to the International Cotton Genome Initiative, managing its elections and serving as a communication and coordination hub for the community.
