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.

Gramene database build 47 released

The Gramene Team is pleased to announce its release #47 featuring the new Plant Reactome, we are providing version 3 of the Reactome software platform. Notable new features include:

  • 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

Aug 2015 Webinar: Plant Reactome Analysis Tools

Tuesday, August 18, 2015 11:00:00 AM PDT - 11:30:00 AM PDT

This session will showcase the pathway analysis tools provided with the latest version of the Plant Reactome web site and database ( Learn how to upload and visualize genomic, transcriptomic, and metabolic data on pathway diagrams, extract related statistics, and compare pathway-level homology between rice and other species.

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.
