Gramene's impact on plant research in 2015-2016

Gramene database ( offers resources for conducting comparative studies on plant genomes and pathways. Over the years, we have made efforts to reach out to the various communities of plant scientists and have assisted many individuals in using various tools/and resources available from the Gramene. We have also established connection between ours and other publicly available data sources. In year 2015 and 2016, Gramene has been cited ~90 times by various researchers.

Gramene Database build 51 is out!

The Gramene Team is pleased to announce its release #51. In collaboration with Ensembl Plants, we are providing in this release:
