• A powerful new interface (InterMine) deployed to enable querying genomic and genetic data for several legume species - currently, for common bean, soybean, peanut, and a combined LegumeMine for these species (also see the Medicago truncatula MedicMine at collaborating institution JCVI). Developed in collaboration with the NSF-supported Legume Federation project.
  • New search page for BioProjects at NCBI for legume species (accessed from the Search menu).
  • Assignments to gene families for annotations recently-added genomes: Adzuki bean, red clover, chickpea (desi). Note that these do not yet appear in the gene family trees, but are fully usable in gene searches and can have their membership counts displayed in gene family searches. The assignment to gene families also allows these genomes to be used in synteny-based searching, for example: take a gene family, then pick a gene and click on "Find similar genomic contexts for GENE." Example (see regions marked "tripr" and "vigan" for Trifolium pratense and Vigna angularis, and mouseover the "cicar" scaffold to see the gene labels characteristic of the ICC4958 "desi" chickpea).
