[P]redicting and guaranteeing sources of feedstock is complicated by natural and environmental factors, such as the current mountain pine beetle epidemic which has devastated more than 14 million hectares of pine forests, crossed BC’s Rocky Mountain barrier into Alberta, and is now poised to threaten Canada’s vast boreal forest. Dr. Joerg Bohlmann (UBC) is… [Read More]
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI) has selected 71 new genomic sequencing projects for its 2010 Community Sequencing Program (CSP)a targeted sampling of the planet’s biodiversity to be characterized for bioenergy, climate, and environmental applications. JGI’s Community Sequencing Program is the largest genomic sequencing effort in the world focused on nonmedical… [Read More]
Phytozome provides a central “hub” for web access to a rapidly growing number of plant genomes, and includes tools for visualization of plant genomes and associated annotations, sequence analysis, and bulk, as well as targeted, plant data retrieval. The gene families available in Phytozome, defined at several evolutionarily significant epochs, provide a framework for the… [Read More]
