Welcome to the Medicago truncatula Gene Nomenclature Site

Medicago truncatula is a legume species that has been adopted by a growing group of investigators as a model system for genetic and genomic analysis of development in this important plant family (Fabaceae). This site provides a curated list of mutant gene names that have been registered by the laboratories that identified them.
