New Location for PlantGDB (July 23, 2012)
The Brendel Group is now located at Indiana University, and the PlangGDB server has been migrated as well, and it is now hosted at the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing. We don't anticipate any disruption in service, but if you encounter any problems with the website we encourage you to contact us using our Feedback Form. (3-14-2012)
BrGDB - Brassica rapa chromosome-based genome browser (Mar. 16)
StGDB - Solanum tuberosum new genome browser (Mar. 16)
StGDB, a new genome database for the potato (Solanum tuberosum) is now available at PlantGDB (Genomes→Other→StGDB). Based on the JGI draft genome, VcGDB includes 14,971 protein-coding loci and 15,285 protein-coding transcripts on 413 scaffolds. Other data displayed include splice-aligned cDNAs, EST and PUTs, and splice-aligned related species proteins. (3-14-2012)
BrGDB - Brassica rapa chromosome-based genome browser (Mar. 16)
BrGDB, the genome browser for rapeseed (Brassica rapa) is now updated at PlantGDB (Genomes→Other→BrGDB). Based on the BRAD draft genome, BrGDB includes 41,019 protein-coding transcripts on 10 chromosomes plus unanchored scaffolds (concatenated with 200 N spacer as "chr11"). Other data displayed include splice-aligned cDNAs, EST and PUTs, and splice-aligned related species proteins. (3-16-2012)

PlantGDB NSF Grant (Jan 31)

The PlantGDB website is currently being managed under a new NSF Genome Research Grant, IOS-1126267 (IPGA: Characterization, Modeling, Prediction, and Visualization of the Plant Transcriptome.) Read more about IPGA.

PlantGDB at Maize Genetics Conf. (Jan 31)
PlantGDB will be represented at the 54th Annual Maize Genetics Conference, March 15-18, 2012, in Portland, Oregon USA. Check out poster P56 "Discovery, annotation and expression analysis of arginine/serine (SR) proteins in maize using the Plant Genome Database PlantGDB". (1-28-2012)
GenBank Release 187 (Jan 31)
GenBank Release 187.0 sequence data (close date 12-15-2011) have been processed and are available for downloading at PlantGDB. Twenty-three new or updated transcript assemblies have been created. Please note that indexing the new sequence data has been postponed due to infrastructure issues. (2-27-2012)
New Add Track feature for Genome Browsers Dec 15
Users can add their own genome features (aligned transcripts, gene models, etc) using our User Add Track tool. All that's needed is a properly formatted gff3 file. This feature is currently available at ZmGDB and AtGDB/ and will be available soon for all GDB. (12-15-2011).

What's Coming?

Genome updates (1-31-2012)
We are in the process of prioritizing genomes at PlantGDB for update. In addition, newly-available plant genomes are being prioritized for inclusion in PlantGDB's Genome Browser suite. Our goal is to maintain current data for at least 25 genomes.
