Dear Gramene users,

We are happy to announce the release of our 27th build of the Gramene

release include:

- Four new species added to the genome browser:
-- Oryza glaberrima short arm
-- Sorghum bicolor (Sorghum)
-- Vitis vinifera (grape)
-- Populus trichocarpain (poplar)

- The markers database contains a total of 30M markers including up-to-
date nucleotide sequences of all Viridiplantae contained in the NCBI
Genbank Core Nucleotide, dbEST, and dbGSS division.

- Introduced Gazetteer (GAZ) ontology to describe places, place names
and the relations between them to annotate the source site of
germplasm collection

- New SorghumCyc 1.0 metabolic pathways beta release

- New RiceCyc 2.0 metabolic pathways release

- New sorghum genetic diversity database
