The National Academy of Agricultural Science (NAAS) has developed a web-based database to provide characterization information in silkworm. The silkworm database has four major function menus: variety searching, characterization viewing, general information and photo gallery. It provides 321 silkworm varieties characterization information for six different regions namely, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, European, Tropical and nonclassified group. Additionally, the database provides 1,132 photo images regarding life cycle of various silkworm varieties. A specific characterization information table provides accession number, variety, strain and larval marking, blood color, cocoon color, cocoon shape, egg colors, remarks and image table provides photos which consist of shape and color in the different stages of larval, egg and cocoon stages. Availability: The database is available for free at
