Lettuce is a valuable crop in the United States and worldwide. It also serves as an important representative species for research on the Compositae, one of the most diverse and successful families of Angiosperm plants.

The Lettuce Genome Sequencing Project has been a collaboration between the Michelmore lab at UC Davis and the BGI, Shenzen. It was supported by the Lettuce Genome Sequencing Consortium comprised of Agrisemen, BGI, Enza Zaden, Gautier Semences, ISI Sementi, Monsanto Vegetable Seeds, Rijk Zwaan, Syngenta, Takii, Tozer Seeds, and Vilmorin.

The Lettuce Genome Resource (LGR) was developed as a portal to provide access to genetic and genomic resources for cultivated lettuce (Lactuca sativa) and its relatives. The data have been generated as a result of the Compositae Genome Project and the Lettuce Genome Sequencing Project. Please register to access the 'Search', 'Tools' and 'Downloads' sections of this website. New data will be posted on this website as they become available, so please check back regularly or join the LGR mailing list.
