About the MtSSPdb


The MtSSPdb is part of the project "Genome-wide Analysis of Small Signaling Peptides in M. truncatula with an Emphasis on Macro-nutrient Regulation of Root and Nodule Development" supported by National Science Foundation (Grant 1444549). The SSP-Prediction tool is funded by Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology (OCAST PS18-012).
