• New genome browser for common bean assembly v2.0 (Phaseolus vulgaris G19833). The v1.0 assembly will remain available, but we will gradually transition to using v2.0 for default displays and data sources.
  • New CMap-js features - for example, view the two bean assemblies (v1.0 and v2.0) in CMap-js.
  • Major enhancements to the LIS Genome Context Viewer (GCV) including greatly improved application load times and new multiple alignment capability, allowing you to take a set of genes (such as those belonging to a complex gene family), cluster the genomic contexts in which they appear based on the similarity of thier gene content and produce multiple alignments for each group based on inferred Profile Hidden Markov Models; this can be used by requesting the multiview for the set of genes in a family brought together in a search view, or by requesting the multiview associated with an internal node of a gene tree, which will collect contexts associated with the leaves of the subtree at the node and perform the requested analysis. Here is an example, based on the set of genes from an F-box/LRR family.
