News: September 2007

NEW REPORT: The Gene Counts report has been incorporated into the new "Organism ID Number" report. The new report displays the Organism's name, common name, the organism number assigned to the organism in the database and the number of genes in the database for that organism.

NEW TOOL: Now available under the "Viewers" section on the side tool bar is the ability to see SMART domains using the SMART Domain Viewer.

JUST RELEASED: Oryza sativa (indica cultivar-group) genes are now available to the public.
We downloaded the draft sequence from Rice GD to search for putative orthologs of ChromDB japonica proteins. We started with the predicted proteins available at that site and improved transcript models as needed. However, some models need additional work as sequence gaps or errors have affected the quality of the predicted proteins.
