Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Welcome to PlantaeDB!

The initiative, originally launched as part of the 2023 Scientific Communications Session at the University of Bucharest, has undergone continual evolution by integrating additional databases and contributions. It has now culminated as the subject of my final thesis for a Master's degree in Bioinformatics (due for presenting in July 2024).

PlantaeDB is a comprehensive database dedicated to the Kingdom Plantae. It offers scientifically-backed information on plant uses, active compounds, and taxonomy. Our platform is integrated with trusted sources and encourages community contributions. Whether you're a botanist, a gardener, or a plant enthusiast, PlantaeDB aims to be your go-to resource for all things plant-related.

We have a dedicated page for this very question.
