DOE JGI Releases Expanded Version of Phytozome.net

DOE JGI Releases Expanded Version of Phytozome.net: Clearinghouse for Comparative Plant Genomics Data

phytozomeAn enhanced version of Phytozome.net, a web portal for comparative plant genomics geared to advance biofuel, food, feed, and fiber research, has been released by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI).

Phytozome provides a central “hub” for web access to a rapidly growing number of plant genomes, and includes tools for visualization of plant genomes and associated annotations, sequence analysis, and bulk, as well as targeted, plant data retrieval.  The gene families available in Phytozome, defined at several evolutionarily significant epochs, provide a framework for the transfer of functional information to important biofuel and agricultural crops from model plant systems, as well as allowing users to explore land plant evolution.

The 4.0 release of Phytozome now spans 14 plant genomes, including 8 that have been sequenced at the DOE JGI
