The WinterMothGenomeBase is a online resource for Operophtera brumata genomics.
The winter moth (Operophtera brumata), belonging to the order
Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths), is studied as a model organism
for its response to climate change.
The goal of this web server is to provide comparative genomics resources to enable research on Operophtera brumata biology or Lepidoptera in general.
