The Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR) is an online database of genetic and molecular biology data for Arabidopsis thaliana, a key reference plant. It is an indispensable resource for Arabidopsis researchers.

TAIR was established in 1999 and continues to provide the most comprehensive and current set of plant gene function data. Plant biologists working with both Arabidopsis and other plants use TAIR because the comprehensive information available for Arabidopsis is often directly relevant to other plant species.

Arabidopsis thaliana is an important reference plant for the plant kingdom. Because of its small physical size, short life cycle and small genome, it was adopted as the standard laboratory organism for the study of higher plants and its genome sequence was completed in 2000. Many fundamental research questions about plants have been studied in Arabidopsis in great detail, such as how plants grow, reproduce, sense their environment and adapt to it. Approximately 4000 new research articles on Arabidopsis are published every year
