Catharanthus roseus (L.) G. Don, a medicinal plant, produces monoterpene indole alkaloids (MIAs) derived from secologanin and tryptamine. By integrating genome sequence and 76 RNA-seq datasets available in public platforms, we constructed three types of co-expression network, and identified 6,336 functional modules in total. Furthermore, functional annotation information and several analysis tools such as gene sets enrichment analysis, functional module enrichment analysis and cis-element analysis, were provided for network analysis. We hope that the integration of co-expression network analysis and analysis tools can be used to improve C. roseus gene function annotation, help the communities to study the C. roseus functional genomics and make novel discoveries about key genes involved in some important biological processes.
