• The chromosome-scale synteny blocks previously available through the genome browsers have been incorporated into the Genome Context Viewer, in order to provide further information regarding the extent of the macrosynteny contexts in which the microsyntenic gene blocks are located. As in this example, given any pair of sequences (chromosomes or scaffolds) for which macrosynteny has been precalculated (whether between genomes or within a genome), when the context viewer finds a microsyntenic relationship between these sequences, it will now display the complete extent of macrosynteny between the query and target in a new overview pane. Note that not all pairs of genomes have had macrosynteny precalculated, and the methods used for macrosynteny and microsynteny determination will not always agree in all details.
  • Narrow-leafed lupin gene annotations have been functionally annotated, and assigned to LIS gene families (though they will not appear in the gene trees). This enables their inclusion in gene searches, domain searches, and context viewing. The genome browsers have been updated with these functional annotations as well, and the Lupinus angustifolius macrosynteny blocks added in to the context viewer.
  • Chickpea flower development atlas tracks both in Desi (GBrowse, JBrowse) and Kabuli (GBrowse, JBrowse) genome browsers.
