The advancement of sequencing technologies has made a plethora of whole genome sequenced (WGS) data publicly available. However, utilizing the raw WGS data will not generate promising research outcomes for agriculture. To solve this problem, the Soybean Allele Catalog Tool (https://soykb.org/SoybeanAlleleCatalogTool/search.php) has been developed to assist researchers in gaining insights into soybean genotypes associated with

Viruses have the potential to cause enormous health, social, and economic burdens. These burdens are demonstrated by influenza viruses, which cause seasonal epidemics, and SARS-CoV-2 viruses, which caused the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic resulting in over 4.55 million deaths. Virus research and vaccine strain selection often require viruses to be propagated in cell lines or embryonated chicken
