The Sequenced Angiosperm Genomes and Genome Databases

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5909171
PMID: 29706973
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2018.00418

[…] genomes, which is less than one-eighth of total sequenced angiosperms.Many of these comprehensive genome databases are well-maintained and are frequently updated with release of new versions, such as PlantGDB V187, Phytozome V12, and Gramene V36. Phytozome updates roughly each year, and PGDD and CoGe update timely upon availability of new genome data. Another feature is that these databases are em […]

Abiotic Stresses Cause Differential Regulation of Alternative Splice Forms of GATA Transcription Factor in Rice

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5693882
PMID: 29181013
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2017.01944

[…] (protein BLAST) in three different databases: NCBI (, phytozyme V.11 (, and plant genome database release 187 (, using Arabidopsis GATA1 protein sequence as the reference. Redundant sequences were omitted manually. Functional domains in the full-length protein sequence were identified using pfam, […]


Overexpression of the Maize ZmNLP6 and ZmNLP8 Can Complement the Arabidopsis Nitrate Regulatory Mutant nlp7 by Restoring Nitrate Signaling and Assimilation

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5634353
PMID: 29051766
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2017.01703

[…] e obtained trees was tested using a bootstrapping method with 1000 replicates. The images of the phylogenetic trees were drawn using MEGA7. The genomic and CDS of NLP members were downloaded from the plantGDB database. The gene structures of NLP genes were generated using the GSDS. The position of GAF-Like, RWP-RK and PB1 domain was indicated from the Pfam results. […]


Global Analysis of Small RNA Dynamics during Seed Development of Picea glauca and Arabidopsis thaliana Populations Reveals Insights on their Evolutionary Trajectories

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5632664
PMID: 29046688
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2017.01719

[…] ia a BLASTN search against the Arabidopsis genome on EnsemblPlants ( and then putative proteins in Arabidopsis were searched via a tBLASTN (six frames) against the P. glauca PlantGDB Putative Unique Transcripts (PUTs) database on ConGenIE ( Each PUT underwent another BLASTN search against the Arabidopsis genome. Homologs were identified only if the s […]


Single Copy Genes as Molecular Markers for Phylogenomic Studies in Seed Plants

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 5414570
PMID: 28460034
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evx070

[…] elected a representative sequence from the clusters formed by the novel transcripts and the Newbler assemblies with 90% identity to remove redundant transcripts. For P. pinaster, we integrated 15,648 PlantGDB-assembled Unique Transcripts (PUTs, based on GenBank release 177) () and 210,513 unigenes from SustainPineDB (). For P. sylvestris, we integrated 73,609 PUTs (based on GenBank release 187) an […]
