LEAFDATA is a manually curated literature database. Statements are collected from 'Results' sections of full text primary publications. Our main interest is leaf growth and development therefore we select research papers describing altered leaf phenotypes or analyzing genes that were previously identified as important regulators of leaf formation. The development of this resource follows our successful efforts establishing our own manual annotation method described in Szakonyi et al. 2015. LEAFDATA currently hosts 15721 text fragments organized by information type.
