1. Microarray related data files
First set of files containing array elements' association to gene
information on AFGC and Affymetrix chips in our ftp site.

The Affy files are generated by BLAST analysis and manual curation against
the latest TIGR genome data. We are currently working on generating the
AFGC file using the same pipeline. Both of these files will be updated as
the genome annotation data are updated. We are also in the process of
integrating microarry data into our database for searching and

2. Functional Genomics Projects

You can search for genes as well as groups working on functional genomic
characterization of Arabidopsis genes. The gene list can also be download
from our ftp site. If you are funded to work on functional
characterization of a group of genes in Arabidopsis, we would like to
include your gene list. Information on how to submit your gene list can be
found at:

3. Update or Register Your Personal/Lab Information
