DOE JGI releases expanded version of Phytozome.net
Date:5/29/2009

ucture of plants in general and how they respond to disease and environmental stress.

  • Physcomitrella patens, a moss widely recognized as an experimental organism of choice not only for basic molecular, cytological, and developmental questions in plant biology, but also as a key link in understanding plant genome evolution.

  • Selaginella moellendorffii, a spikemoss with a compact genome that is helping to define an ancient core of genes common to all vascular plants.

    Phytozome also includes the completed sequences of rice, papaya, grape, Medicago (the genus which includes alfalfa as a member), Arabidopsis thaliana, as well as maize bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) sequences from the Maize Genome Sequencing Project (http://www.maizesequence.org).

    Phytozome, accessible to the public at www.phytozome.net, is a collaboration between scientists at the DOE JGI, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and the University of California, Berkeley Center for Integrative Genomics. It was developed with funding from the Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
