Mining Maize with Gramene - Free Webinar May 22, 2018 @ 2 pm EDT

Have you ever needed to know if the maize gene you work on has an ortholog in sorghum or Arabidopsis? ... Has the gene family that you are working on expanded or contracted relative to other crop or model grass species? ... Is the biochemical pathway you work on conserved in sorghum and soybean?

If so, you may want to explore these questions in the Gramene database!

The Gramene Database build 57 is out with a new polyploid genomes view!

The Gramene Team is pleased to announce its release #57 with 2,076,020 genes and 53 reference plant genomes.  Among the genes in this release, 1,892,629 are protein coding.  In turn 1,703,219 protein-coding genes are organized in 67,042 gene family trees.
