Automates the identification of candidate plant biosynthetic gene clusters (BGCs), as well as their comparative genomic and transcriptomic analysis. plantiSMASH results for publicly available plant genomes are directly accessible. Runs for 48 high-quality plant genomes were precomputed and made available online.
