Wheat (Triticum aestivum), the most widely cultivated crop in the world, ranks third and counts to around 35% of the total grains produced around the globe. Recently, the occurence of stem rust in wheat has affected the grain yield and quality of the crop to around 60-70%, thus being a major threat to the agriculture industry, worldwide. The disease is caused by two races of Puccinia graminis: 'Ug99' and '21-0'.
TRustDB, a database for Triticum aestivum -Puccinia species protein-protein interactions, provides valuable information about the Puccinia species, which includes various functional protein annotations of the proteins involved in the interactions.
