Gramene: A Resource for Comparative Plant Genomics.
Gramene (http://www.gramene.org) is a curated, open-source, web-accessible data resource for comparative genome analysis in the plants. The goal of Gramene is to help molecular biologists, biochemists, geneticists, plant breeder and researchers using genomics tools to identify and understand the relationships among genes, pathways and phenotypes in a wide range of grass species. Building upon the completely sequenced genomes of rice and Arabidopsis and maize that is currently being sequenced, Gramene presents information on Genomes, sequence related features, genes, proteins, QTL, genetic maps, genetic markers, germplasm, genetic diversity and metabolic pathways. Information is organized by modules, where the relationships between data sets are generated in a semi-automated and manually curated using controlled vocabularies (ontologies) and literature citations.
Using Gramene helps a researcher to easily find orthologs between rice, Arabidopsis, compare sequenced genomes and their colinearity, compare genetic maps and their colinearity to sequenced genomes, find genes, their functions, phenotypes, roles in the pathways and associations to genetic diversity using SNPs, other polymorphic markers and QTLs. The presentation will higlight the organization of information and tools developed to help drive your research of interest.
The Gramene project is supported by National Science Foundation grant No. 0321685 and USDA ARS.
