The Gramene Database Team

Gramene(www.gramene.org) is a curated, open-source, web-accessible 
data resource for comparative genome analysis in the grasses. Our 
goal is to facilitate the study of cross-species homology 
relationships using information derived from public projects involved 
in genomic and EST sequencing, protein structure and function 
analysis, genetic and physical mapping, interpretation of biochemical 
pathways, gene and QTL localization and descriptions of phenotypic 
characters and mutations.

This work is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the
USDA-Agricultural Research Service, and was previously funded by the USDA
Initiative for Future Agriculture and Food Systems (IFAFS). We are thankful
to numerous collaborators and contributors for help in curation and for
sharing their datasets and tools.
