The Plant Genome Integrative Explorer Resource: PlantGenIE.org

  • Accessing and exploring large-scale genomics datasets remains a significant challenge to researches without specialist bioinformatics training.
  • We present the integrated PlantGenIE.org platform for exploration of Populus, conifer and Arabidopsis genomics data, including expression networks and associated visualisation tools. Standard features of a model organism database are provided, including genome browsers, gene list annotation, BLAST homology searches and gene information pages. Community annotation updating is supported via integration of WebApollo.
  • We have produced an RNA-Seq expression atlas for Populus tremula and have integrated these data within the expression tools.
  • PlantGenIE integrates an updated version of the ComPlEx resource for performing Comparative Plant Expression analyses of gene co-expression network conservation between species.
  • The PlantGenIE.org platform provides intuitive access to large-scale and genome-wide genomics data from model forest tree species, facilitating both community contributions to annotation improvement and tools supporting use of the included data resources to inform biological insight.
