A Brief IntroductionMicroTomBase V1.0

Tomato is an economically important crop with large production figures around the world and its fruit contains many functional metabolites beneficial to human health. Tomato is also important for scientific research as it is a model system for the Solanaceae family, which includes eggplant, potato, pepper, and tobacco. Since one of its most notable features is fruit development, tomato is a useful material for fruit-related research such as ripening, ethylene signaling, and secondary metabolite profiling.

Among the many existing tomato cultivars, the dwarf "MicroTom" has become a popular model system for tomato research. Micro-Tom can be grown under fluorescent light at a high density.

In the future, we hope that the MicroTomBase will become a center hub for the study of the MicroTom tomato and lead the research work of the Solanaceae plants worldwide.
