The Grid Computing and Clusters group of Barcelona Supercomputing Center is proud to announce the release of COMPSs version 1.2. A framework for easily implement distributed applications.

This thesis focuses on deriving function from sequence information, with the emphasis on plant sequence data.

A decisions support system to evaluate and recommend the most suitable strategy for genome sequencing and assembly.

Elucidation of genotype-to-phenotype relationships is a major challenge in biology. In plants, it is the basis for molecular breeding. Quantitative Trait Locus (QTL) mapping enables to link variation at the trait level to variation at the genomic level.

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

Gramene (http://www.gramene.org) is a curated online resource for comparative functional genomics in crops and model plant species, currently hosting 27 fully and 10 partially sequenced reference genomes in its build number 38.

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.
