A press release presenting the research potential and contribution of Polish organizations to R&D and deployment projects financed by DG-INFSO by means of the 7th Framework Programme and the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme.

The Ensembl Genomes Project, including Ensembl Plants, is pleased to announce release 16 of Ensembl Genomes. In this release, new species in Ensembl Plants include Hordeum vulgare (barley), Solanum tuberosum (potato) and Musa acuminata (banana). Improvements on the wheat assembly and the ability to highlight annotations in gene trees have also been released.

Plant breeders, biologists, and bioinformaticians from ten countries, seven US states, and two plant agribusinesses gathered in Corvallis, Oregon, September 13th-15th, 2012 for a Crop Plant Trait Ontology Workshop.

Knowledge found in biomedical databases, in particular in Web information systems, is a major bioinformatics resource. In general, this biological knowledge is worldwide represented in a network of databases.

Population structure causes genome-wide linkage disequilibrium between unlinked loci, leading to statistical confounding in genome-wide association studies.

Ensembl Genomes (http://www.ensemblgenomes.org) is an integrative resource for genome-scale data from non-vertebrate species.

transPLANT

is a European-Union funded e-infrstructure to support computational analysis of genomic data from crop and model plants. The project funds coordination and research activities; and provides free access to tools, training and data standards.

Training

transPLANT is running a series of training courses across Europe. The next one will be held at EMBL-EBI, Hinton, UK, 1st-3rd July, 2015. When registration is opened, details will be posted here.

  • You can access material from the previous transPLANT training courses here.
  • We are developing a series of videos, guiding users through some of the most interesting and complex data sets available for plants. View the first video, focused on resources for the barley genome, here.

Standards

The development and adoption of data standards is vital to the interoperability of data. transPLANT is currently pursuing the development of standards for plant phenotyping data, in collaboration with other interested groups. Visit our Phenotype standardisation portal to see the latest proposals and get involved.
