Gramene: A Resource for Comparative Grass Genomics
Gramene is a curated, open-source, data resource for comparative genome analysis in the grasses.
Our goal is to facilitate the study of cross-species homology relationships using information derived from public projects involved in genomic and EST sequencing, protein structure and function analysis, genetic and physical mapping, interpretation of biochemical pathways, gene and QTL localization and descriptions of phenotypic characters and mutations.
As an information resource, Gramene's purpose is to provide added value to data sets available within the public sector, which will facilitate researchers' ability to understand the rice genome and leverage the rice genomic sequence for identifying and understanding corresponding genes, pathways and phenotypes in other crop grasses.
This is achieved by building automated and curated relationships between rice and other cereals for both sequence and biology.
简单说：它就是grasses的一个比较基因组数据库。主要涉及rice, maize, sorghum, barley, wheat等。使用起来还是非常方便的。特别它的基因数据库中的Orthologues分析。感觉很好...
