PlantGeneWiki Beta release

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 dont 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 URLs.
