Schedule some time to visit Booth #318 at the PAG conference January
Ten plant database projects are working together to provide users
with an opportunity to visit with them to get an introduction or to
ask questions about using the databases. A representative from each
database will be available for a period of time during the opening
reception, and again during the poster sessions. Representatives will
also be available throughout the convention as scheduled (See the
schedule below). For more information visit the booth for the daily
schedule, or contact your favorite databases to schedule a time to
meet with them.
Databases that will be represented include:
MaizeGDB (www.maizegdb.org) - the community database for genetic and
genomic information about maize and its close relatives.
Maizesequence.org - (www.maizesequence.org) provides sequence and
annotation of the Zea mays ssp. mays genome resulting from the Maize
Genome Sequencing Project.
Gramene (www.gramene.org) - resource for comparative genome analysis
in plants using model genomes from rice, maize, and Arabidopsis.
TAIR (www.arabidopsis.org)- database of genetic and molecular
biology data for the model higher plant Arabidopsis thaliana.
GrainGenes (www.graingenes.org) - a compilation of molecular and
phenotypic information for the Triticeae and Avena species. This
includes wheat, barley, rye, oats, and other closely related species.
SGN (www.sgn.cornell.edu) - The SOL Genomics Network is a Clade
Oriented Database (COD) containing genomic, genetic and taxonomic
information for species in the Euasterid clade, including the
families Solanaceae (e.g. tomato, potato, eggplant, pepper, petunia)
and Rubiaceae (coffee).
PLEXdb (Plant Expression Database) (www.plexdb.org) - a unified
public resource for large-scale plant gene expression for comparative
VPhenoDBS (www.phenomicsworld.org) - a search engine and database for
visually observed phenotypes of Maize mutant and diseases. It
features query by images, query by semantics, and browsing through
SoyBase (http://soybase.org) - database of genetic, phenotypic, and
other information about soybean.
LIS (http://comparative-legumes.org) - resource that integrates
genetic and molecular data from multiple legume species and enables
cross-species genomic, transcript and map comparisons.
