Alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) is a versatile and valuable crop that has been cultivated for over 2,000 years. As a perennial flowering plant in the legume family, Fabaceae, it is also known as lucerne and is widely grown as a forage crop for livestock. Originally native to Europe and Asia, it is now grown in many parts of the world, including the United States, Canada, Australia, and South Africa. It is a highly nutritious plant that is rich in protein, minerals, and vitamins. This feature have allowed it to be cultivated in many parts of the world, making it a valuable crop for farmers and consumers alike. The accumulation of multidimensional and multi-omics data for alfalfa has been made possible by recent advancements in high-throughput techniques. The integration of this information holds great potential to expedite genetic research and facilitate advancements in alfalfa agronomic traits. To this goal, we have developed a comprehensive database named MODMS, which incorporates multiple reference genomes, annotations, comparative genomics, transcriptomes, high-quality genetic variants, proteomics, and metabolomics.
