February 2016 Gramene Webinar: Updates on Plant Reactome

Register to join us online on Tuesday, February 16, 2016, at 2:00 pm EST/11:00 am PST.

Plant Reactome is a freely available resource of curated metabolic, signaling, and regulatory pathways from the reference species rice, and gene homology-based pathway projections for 58 other plants including Arabidopsis, maize, grape, strawberry, tomato, etc. Plant Reactome uses a eukaryotic cell model for pathway visualization, and allows uploading and analysis of omics data.

Gramene updates published in Jan, 2016 issue of Nucleic Acids Research

The recent updates in Gramene database have been summarized in the article “Gramene 2016: comparative plant genomics and pathway resources” published in the January 2016 issue of Nucleic Acids Research focused on biological databases.

Fascination of Plants Day 2016 -- Seeds grown on Earth and shipped to space!

Fascination of Plants Day (FoPD) is celebrated around the world on May 18th.  Although this worldwide event runs every other year and the next one is planned for 2017, smaller and local events were encouraged per individual and local interest on 2016.

What a better way to celebrate FoPD than learning about the awesomeness of plants and the seeds they make!


Seed collection expedition and seed detectives in action!

Gramene will be at the CSHL Biology of Genome Conference on May 10-14

Are you ready for this year's Biology of Genomes conference at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory?

Come meet the Gramene team and get the latest updates to Gramene’s comparative genomics and pathways visualization/mining tools to aid your research of plant models and crops!


Gramene will participate at this conference with the following posters:
