Welcome to PalmXplore

PalmXplore is a public-domain archive of predicted oil palm ( Elaeis guineensis ) genes. The database presently contains 26,059 high confidence oil palm genes generated by integrating two gene-prediction pipelines: FGENESH++ developed by Softberry and Seqping by MPOB.

Genome assembly and gene models are available for download here OR at the Genomsawit website.
