Gramene release # 56b: updates to Plant Reactome

In Gramene release 56b, we present recent updates of Plant Reactome, the pathway portal of Gramene. We have added 22 newly curated pathways, 3 updated pathways, 8 newly projected species, and gene interaction data to Plant Reactome.


The Gramene Database build 56 is out with 8 new plant genomes!

The Gramene Team is pleased to announce its release #56 with 2,075,925 genes and 53 reference plant genomes.  Of these genes, 1,892,629 are protein coding, and 1,703,219 genes are organized in 67,042 gene family trees. 

The Gramene and MaizeCode Projects launched the first Maize Annotation Jamboree

The first genomic annotation jamboree for B73 Zea mays (maize) RefGenV4 Zm gene models was held on December 3-5, 2017 at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL).

Early career Tansley Medal award for plant scientists!

Calling all early career plant scientists!

The New Phytologist Tansley Medal is awarded annually in recognition of an outstanding contribution to plant science by an individual in the early stages of their career (student and post-doctoral researchers with up to five years’ experience since gaining / defending their PhD are eligible).

The Gramene Database build 55 is out with a brand new Jute genome!

The Gramene Team is pleased to announce its release #55 with 1,836,677 genes and 45 reference plant genomes.  Of these genes, 1,588,290 are protein coding, and 1,492,253 genes organized in 63,367 gene family trees.

Gramene encourages and supports researchers to learn how to annotate and format their data sets accurately for publication and deposition in the public repositories for its long-term utilization, re-use, re-analysis and interoperability.


Half-day workshop on bioinformatics tools for Plant Genomics (Nov. 29, Noon-5PM)

Prior to the start of the CSHL Plant Genomes Meeting, a half-day workshop will be sponsored by the Gramene (NSF #1127112) and CyVerse (NSF # 1265383) projects and will cover public bioinformatics tools and resour

The Gramene Database build 54 is out!

The Gramene Team is pleased to announce its release #54 with 1,751,769 genes and 44 reference plant genomes.
