Gramene BLAST Webinar on Tues, Oct 20, 2015 @ 2:00 pm EDT

Have a BLAST with Gramene!

The Gramene database invites you to a FREE 30-min webinar on Gramene BLAST.

This webinar will highlight important features of the sequence BLAST tool and demonstrate how to maximize your chances of getting the best BLAST hits. The tool allows aligning query sequences against genomic DNA, cDNAs and translated peptides of 39 plant genomes in Gramene.

New Plant Ontology Release available

A new Plant Ontology (PO) data release is available on the PO browser.

See the highlights in the PO's News blog and complete details in PO's release notes.

  • Data analysis tools

    • Diagram overlay visualization of gene lists, Uniprot IDs, compound identifiers, and/or -omics expression data

    • Inter-species pathway comparison

  • Advanced search features built on the Apache Solr platform

CSHL servers network maintenance on Aug. 7, 2015 at 12-12:30 am EDT

CSHL Information Technology will be performing some network maintenance on the early morning of Friday, August 7th. The maintenance will interrupt network access to Gramene's servers, affecting local and Internet access to the machines.

UPDATE: The work will be performed between 12:00 - 12:30 AM EDT.

Please plan accordingly. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Fascination of Plants Day 2015

Fascination of Plants Day (FoPD) was celebrated around the World on May 18th of 2015

To celebrate FoPD in New York, members of the Ware Lab (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) brought a little amazement to the young and bright minds of kindergarteners at Bayville Primary School, as well as to a number of children from various elementary schools in the Locust Valley area who are members of the Grenville Baker Boys and Girls Club's Science Club.
