The Yew Genomics Resource provides information about members of the yew family of conifers, with an emphasis on taxanes. The most prominent representative of this class of natural products is Taxol(R), a pseudoalkaloid diterpenoid that is used as an anti-cancer treatment. This web-based resource contains general information about the species of the yew family (Taxaceae), more in-depth coverage of known taxane structures, and links to relevant genomics data sets and other online tools.
