Plant Variation in Gramene Webinar: Tues, Mar 29, 2016 @ 2:00 pm EDT

Plant Variation in Gramene!

The Gramene database ( has the pleasure to invite you to a FREE 30-min webinar to learn how to explore and visualize structural and genetic variation data (e.g., naturally occurring SNPs, inter-homoeologous variants and induced point-mutations) for 12 plant species in Gramene and Ensembl Plants.

Gramene Workshop at the Maize Genetics Conference 2016

In the context of the Maize Genetics Conference 2016, the Gramene Project will be presenting a workshop on Thursday, 17 March 2016 from 3:30 - 4:30 PM EDT in the Daytona Room of  the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront.

Gramene book chapter in the Plant Bioinformatics volume of the Methods in Molecular Biology protocols series

In recent months, the Plant Bioinformatics volume of the Methods in Molecular Biology protocols series edited by Professor David Edwards of the University of Queensland, Australia, was published.  This volume included 18 chapters covering various topics of interest to the plant research community and featured bioinformatic resources available for plant researchers.  The Gramene Database was featured in one of those chapters.

Gramene build #50: Planned updates and new data sets

Release 50 of Gramene is scheduled for March 22, 2016. Our intentions for this release are:

February 2016 Gramene Webinar: Updates on Plant Reactome

Register to join us online on Tuesday, February 16, 2016, at 2:00 pm EST/11:00 am PST.

Plant Reactome is a freely available resource of curated metabolic, signaling, and regulatory pathways from the reference species rice, and gene homology-based pathway projections for 58 other plants including Arabidopsis, maize, grape, strawberry, tomato, etc. Plant Reactome uses a eukaryotic cell model for pathway visualization, and allows uploading and analysis of omics data.

Gramene updates published in Jan, 2016 issue of Nucleic Acids Research

The recent updates in Gramene database have been summarized in the article “Gramene 2016: comparative plant genomics and pathway resources” published in the January 2016 issue of Nucleic Acids Research focused on biological databases.

Gramene is attending the PAG Conference 2016 — See you in San Diego!

Come meet the Gramene team and get the latest updates to Gramene’s comparative genomics and pathways visualization/mining tools to aid your research of plant models and crops!

The Gramene workshop will give a broad overview of Gramene’s database resources and use cases demonstrating many specific topics like how to:
