PlantGeneWiki Beta release
Posted on May 6, 2009, 5:40 PM, by pankaj, under Community news, 
Database release, Gramene, Gramene news.

The Gramene database project team is happy to announce beta release of 
the  PlantGeneWiki. It is designed as an online community portal on 
plant genes and their annotations. Our goal for PlantGeneWiki is to 
generate community curated/annotated pages where the researchers can 
browse, search, read and manage the content by editing. Yes, the biggest 
advantage of them all is that researchers now have the ability to update 
and edit the information known about the genes identified in plants on 
their own without any delays. If you don’t find a gene of your interest 
in the PlantGeneWiki, you can add it as well. Any content you add/edit 
on PlantGeneWiki is released for instant online access and cites your 
contribution. Therefore a good starting place is to add/edit information 
on known genes.

PlantGeneWiki is freely accessible to everyone and you can help us make 
it better in following ways:

     * Share your knowledge by EDITING existing and/or ADDING new 
information to the existing gene pages.
     * Adding NEW GENE PAGES.
     * Adding links.
     * Correct and report our errors.

We encourage first time users to get familiarized with the portal and 
user/contributor functions by taking the Guided Tours/Tutorials.

The PlantGeneWiki website can be accessed from any of the following URL’s.
