Workshop on plant variation data, re-sequencing projects and GWAS analyses within transPLANT, hosted at The European Bioinformatics Institute, Cambridge, UK from 1st July to 3rd July. Click here to apply.

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.

Plants are sessile and therefore exposed to a number of biotic and abiotic stresses. Drought is the major abiotic stress restricting plant growth worldwide.

Recent developments in DNA sequencing have enabled the large and complex genomes of many crop species to be determined for the first time, even those previously intractable due to their polyploid nature.

Recent methodological developments in plant phenotyping, as well as the growing importance of its applications in plant science and breeding, are resulting in a fast accumulation of multidimensional data.

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.


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.
