Genome wide analysis of GRAS transcription factor gene family in Gossypium hirsutum L.

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5944045
PMID: 29743013
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4722-x

[…] fied five types of gene duplication events with MCScanX using the GRAS protein sequences and the position data in chromosomes []. Additionally, we made a diagram of the chromosomal locations with the MapInspect software []. […]


Genome wide analysis of family 1 UDP glycosyltransferases (UGT) and identification of UGT genes for FHB resistance in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 5909277
PMID: 29673318
DOI: 10.1186/s12870-018-1286-5

[…] The genetic location of each UGT on the chromosomes was retrieved from the final TGACv1 map []. The genetic map of each UGT on the chromosome was modified from the primary map drawn by the MapInspect tool ( […]


Molecular Characterization, Evolution, and Expression Profiling of the Dirigent (DIR) Family Genes in Chinese White Pear (Pyrus bretschneideri)

Front Genet
PMCID: 5911567
PMID: 29713336
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2018.00136

[…] In order to clarify the distribution of PbDIRs on 17 chromosomes of pear, MapInspect software was used to map PbDIRs on the chromosome (Supplementary Figure ). It can be found that except for PbDIR25 and PbDIR27 have not been mapped on specific chromosomes, the remaining 33 […]


Duplication and diversification of lectin receptor like kinases (LecRLK) genes in soybean

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5897391
PMID: 29651041
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24266-6

[…] he putative genes and the chromosome lengths of each soybean chromosome were obtained from the Phytozome database. Then, an image of the chromosomal location of each GmLecRLK gene was generated using MapInspect software ( As in previous literature, a tandem duplication cluster was defined as a region containing two or more genes within 200 kb,,. Furthermor […]


Genome wide comparative and evolutionary analysis of Calmodulin binding Transcription Activator (CAMTA) family in Gossypium species

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5882909
PMID: 29615731
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-23846-w
call_split See protocol

[…] f all Gossypium CAMTA genes on chromosomes were obtained through BLASTN search against the Cotton Genome project and Phytozome databases. All Gossypium CAMTA genes were mapped on the chromosome using Mapinspect software.The paralogous CAMTA genes were identified in G. arboreum, G. raimondii, and G. hirsutum by using reciprocal blast with e-value < 10−5 to understand the evolutionary mechanism of C […]


Genome wide identification of wheat (Triticum aestivum) expansins and expansin expression analysis in cold tolerant and cold sensitive wheat cultivars

PLoS One
PMCID: 5875846
PMID: 29596529
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0195138

[…] am ( [] and the GSDS 2.0 program ( [] were used to predict the exon–intron structures. Map Inspect software ( was used to analyze the genic physical location on chromosomes. Cis-acting elements analysis in the 2 -kb upstream regions was performed with PlantCARE (http://bioin […]
