The Gramene Database invites you to a FREE 30-min webinar on Gramene Synteny.

During this webinar, we will present synteny data that Gramene generated and views rendered in the Gramene Ensembl genome browser. We will also touch base on the underlying process of synteny build to facilitate a better understanding of the data. We will uses concrete example to demonstrate the usefulness of this data type and how it can help user advance their research.
