Plant domestication and the secrets in a plant's genome for 4th graders

To celebrate Fascination of Plants Day (FoPD) 2019, on May 22nd, Gramene's project manager and outreach, education and training coordinator, Dr. Marcela Karey Tello-Ruiz of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, visited fourth graders at Bayville's Intermediate (BI) School in New York to talk about plants and the secrets in their genomes!  In addition to a dynamic slideshow, students created colorful seed necklaces.

Community Annotation Poster at SUNY Old Westbury's 2019 Student Research Day Conference

Every spring, SUNY Old Westbury hosts an annual Student Research Day.  Students showcase the results of their research and creativity through oral, poster, media and art presentations or exhibits. These academic and artistic achievements represent the effort of in-class assignments and out-of-class experiences conducted with faculty, with more than 100 students participating each year.

The 2019 Student Research Day was held on Tuesday, April 16th under the theme: RESEARCH FOR CHANGE.

The Gramene Database build 58 is out with new and updated genomes!

The Gramene Team is pleased to announce its release #58 with 2,140,348 genes and 56 reference plant genomes.  Among those, 1,783,803 protein-coding genes are organized in 71,284 gene family trees.

Scholarships available for PUI faculty -- Maize Annotation Jamboree: RESCHEDULED for 2019

The NSF-funded MaizeCODE and Gramene projects invites PUI faculty to apply to participate in maize genome annotation jamborees in 2019. The goal of each Jamboree will be to test and mature genome annotation tools being developed for MaizeCODE, while contributing to the genome annotation of the 24 NAM founder lines of the Maize PanGenome.
