A hands-on training workshop in plant pathogenic genomics, focused on the new resource PhytoPath and including coverage of Ensembl Fungi, Ensembl Protists and PHI-base will be held at the EBI in September, aimed at PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who are working on fungal and oomycete-induced disease in plants. Find out more details and register.

Published today in Nature Genetics, Magnus Nordborg and colleagues have produced a high-resolution description of the global pattern of genetic variation in Arabidopsis.

This release of Ensembl Plants includes the newly sequenced Solanum lycopersicum (tomato) genome.

The allohexaploid bread wheat genome consists of three closely related subgenomes (A, B, and D), but a clear understanding of their phylogenetic history has been lacking.

Information Retrieval (IR) plays a central role in the exploration and interpretation of integrated biological datasets that represent the heterogeneous ecosystem of life sciences. Here, keyword based query systems are popular user interfaces.

The life-science community faces a major challenge in handling "big data", highlighting the need for high quality infrastructures capable of sharing and publishing research data. Data preservation, analysis, and publication are the three pillars in the "big data life cycle".

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.
