Génoplante is a partnership program between public French institutes (INRA, CIRAD, IRD and CNRS) and private companies (Biogemma, Bayer CropScience and Bioplante) that aims at developing genome analysis programs for crop species (corn, wheat, rapeseed, sunflower and pea) and model plants (Arabidopsis and rice). The outputs of these programs form a wealth of information (genomic sequence, transcriptome, proteome, allelic variability, mapping and synteny, and mutation data) and tools (databases…

GnpIS: an information system to integrate genetic and genomic data from plants and fungi

GnpIS is a multispecies integrative information system dedicated to plant and fungi pests, allowing researchers access to both genetic and genomic data for species of agronomical interest and is used by both large international projects and plant science departments at the French National Institute for Agricultural Research.


A gene by gene approach has been normally used to understand function. Functional genomics allows large-scale gene function analysis with high throughput technology and incorporates interaction of

Database tool GnpIS: an information system to integrate genetic and genomic data from plants and fungi

This work presents GnpIS, an information system to integrate genetic and genomic data from plants and fungi, and its applications in agriculture and natural resources management.

Bioinformatics: Bringing Data to a Usable Form for Breeders

Post-genomic techniques such as transcriptomics and metabolomics, which can aid characterisation of mapping populations and varieties, also require bioinformatics tools for the curation, analysis and displaying of the very large data sets which they can generate.

Large-scale identification of genes in the fungus Hebeloma cylindrosporum paves the way to molecular analyses of ectomycorrhizal symbiosis

A cDNA library of the ectomycorrhizal fungus Hebeloma cylindrosporum was produced in a yeast expression vector and used for functional complementation cloning and for sequencing of 4036 expressed sequence tags (ESTs).

Characterizing the composition and evolution of homoeologous genomes in hexaploid wheat through BAC-end sequencing on chromosome 3B.

The data demonstrate that BAC-end sequencing from flow-sorted chromosomes is a powerful tool for analysing the structure and evolution of polyploid and highly repetitive genomes.

Expressed sequence tags from the phytopathogenic fungus Botrytis cinerea

A substantial B. cinerea gene inventory including putative virulence factors was obtained and is now available at the Génoplante-Info Database interface (http://urgi.infobiogen.fr///Projects/GPiDB/Interface/).

MAIZEWALL. Database and Developmental Gene Expression Profiling of Cell Wall Biosynthesis and Assembly in Maize 1[W]

Although all of the gene families of the currently accepted monolignol biosynthetic pathway are conserved in maize, there are subtle differences in family size and a high degree of complexity in spatial expression patterns that are in keeping with the diversity of lignified cell types throughout the maize plant.

Integration of Data Sources for Plant Genomics

This paper presents the design and implementation of an integrated environment strongly supported by knowledge-representation and problem-solving tools for functional genomics.



UK CropNet: a collection of databases and bioinformatics resources for crop plant genomics

The UK Crop Plant Bioinformatics Network (UK CropNet) was established in 1996 in order to harness the extensive work in genome mapping in crop plants in the UK. Since this date we have published five

A Draft Sequence of the Rice Genome (Oryza sativa L. ssp. indica)

A draft sequence of the rice genome for the most widely cultivated subspecies in China, Oryza sativa L. ssp.indica, by whole-genome shotgun sequencing is produced, with a large proportion of rice genes with no recognizable homologs due to a gradient in the GC content of rice coding sequences.

A draft sequence of the rice genome (Oryza sativa L. ssp. japonica).

The genome of the japonica subspecies of rice, an important cereal and model monocot, was sequenced and assembled by whole-genome shotgun sequencing and suggests that the genome contains 32,000 to 50,000 genes.

FLAGdb/FST: a database of mapped flanking insertion sites (FSTs) of Arabidopsis thaliana T-DNA transformants

A large collection of T-DNA insertion transformants of Arabidopsis thaliana has been generated at the Institute of Agronomic Research, Versailles, France and the main scope of FLAGdb/FST is to help biologists to find the FSTs that interrupt the genes in which they are interested.

CATMA: a complete Arabidopsis GST database

The Complete Arabidopsis Transcriptome Micro Array (CATMA) database contains gene sequence tag (GST) and gene model sequences for over 70% of the predicted genes in the Arabidopsis thaliana genome as

EUGÈNE: An Eukaryotic Gene Finder That Combines Several Sources of Evidence

EuGene, a gene finder for eukaryotic organisms applied to Arabidopsis thaliana, has been designed to combine the output of several information sources, including output of other software or user information, to achieve the specificity of EuGene.

Integral membrane proteins of the chloroplast envelope: Identification and subcellular localization of new transporters

A subcellular proteomic approach to discover new envelope transporters was developed, which combined the use of highly purified and characterized membrane fractions, extraction of the hydrophobic proteins with organic solvents, SDS/PAGE separation, and tandem mass spectrometry analysis.

Construction of two ordered cDNA libraries enriched in genes encoding plasmalemma and tonoplast proteins from a high-efficiency expression library.

Immunoscreening of the two cDNA ordered libraries with antibodies raised against proteins from Arabidopsis cells submitted to osmotic stress allows the selection of genes over- and under-expressed in stress conditions.

Neural Network Prediction of Translation Initiation Sites in Eukaryotes: Perspectives for EST and Genome Analysis

This paper employs artificial neural networks to predict which AUG triplet in an mRNA sequence is the start codon, and finds that their trained neural networks use a combination of local startcodon context and global sequence information.
