Fern Ethnomedicinal Plants Database

Fern plants are known for their Ethnomedicinal values.Massive amount of fern medicinal plants knowledge scattered in the form of text. Hence, database development would be an appropriate endeavor to cope with the situation. So by looking at the importance of fern plants, we developed a web based database which incorporates several classes of ferns, medicinal uses along with protein/enzyme sequences isolated from different fern plants. Fern Ethnomedicinal Plants Database is an all-embracing, content management web-based database system, used to retrieval of a collection of factual knowledge related to the fern Ethnomedicinal species.

Most of the enzyme sequences have been extracted from NCBI Protein sequence database. The fern family information, Fern species , Taxonomy IDs NCBI , Identification names, Geographical occurrence , Plant parts used, Ethnomedicinal importance , Morphological characteristics, collected from various scientific literatures and journals available in the text form.

NCBI’s BLAST web source has been provided for the future comparative study, Interproscan for Protein Sequence Analysis web source has been provided for protein sequence analysis of Fern plants proteins, Phylogeny Analysis web source has been provided for the Phylogenetic analysis / Evolutionary Significance, Clustal W web source has also been provided for the future multiple sequence analysis. So users can get information related to fern plants and their ethnomedicinal as well as bioinformatics applications at one place. This Fern Ethnomedicinal Plants Database includes information of 100 Fern ethnomedicinal species. This web based database would be an advantageous to derive information specifically for Computational Drug Discovery, Botanists or Botanical interested Persons, Researchers, Bioinformaticians ,Plant Biotechnologists, Pharmacologists, Biochemists, Ayurvedic practitioners, Doctors/Pharmacists, Traditional medicinal users, Farmers, Agricultural students and Teachers from universities as well as colleges and finally Fern plant lovers. This effort would be useful to create social awareness and knowledge among the users about the adventitious applications, uses and conservation of Fern species around the world.
