Curcumin Resource Database

Curcumin Resource Database (CRDB) aims to perform as a gateway-cum-repository to access all relevant data and related information on curcumin and its analogs.


SeriPort provides information on the databases related to biotic components of seribiodiversity, i.e., silkworm, host plants, pests, pathogens, etc.
