• A new service for annotating user-supplied protein or transcript sequences with Automated Human Readable Descriptions (AHRD) based on functionally-oriented homology searching and lexical analysis is available here. This service is based on the same protocol used to produce descriptions for gene annotations for genomes managed in LIS, and includes tentative assignments of the user sequences to the LIS gene families.
  • The Genome Context Viewer (GCV) has been enhanced with several user-requested features, including:
    • Ability to navigate to new regions of the query chromosome by dragging the focus indicator in the macrosynteny track.
    • High-quality image and data downloads for views in the GCV now available by right-clicking on any of its graphical views.
  • RNA-seq gene expression atlas data for Phaseolus vulgaris is now available as profiles based on TPM (transcripts per million) quantification within individual gene pages (ex: a stress response gene very highly expressed in root tissues).
