Pisum sativum Google logo!
July 19, 2011 at 22:51 MDT

Today's Google logo, in honor of the July 20 birthday of Gregor Mendel, is constructed of the pods of Pisum sativum (garden pea). Mendel's careful experiments and observations helped found the discipline we now know as Genetics. G and Y in the image indicate the wrinkly green and smooth yellow pea phenotypes Mendel observed in his cross-breeding experiments.

For Pisum sativum at LIS, see http://pea.comparative-legumes.org, and for a nice introduction to Mendelian genetics,...

New GBrowse for Medicago truncatula
June 13, 2011 at 16:02 MDT

Introduced a new GBrowse instance for the Medicago truncatula genome at http://medtr.comparative-legumes.org/gb2/gbrowse/3.5.1. Based on Mt build 3.5.1, tracks include IMGAG gene models, transposable elements, and synteny blocks with Glycine max.

New browser, seqqle features, genome viewer
January 05, 2011 at 16:31 MST

New genome browser for Medicago build 3.5.1. The focus is on relationships with other genomes. Added Medicago truncatula genome build 3.5.1 to Seqqle pages. This supports link-outs to the new Mt GBrowse site (above). Seqqle search reports now include "full genome summaries" depicting the mapping of query sequences onto the chromosomes of Gm, Lj, and Mt using the new Genome Drawing Engine and the Comparative Map and Trait Viewer.

The LIS team continue to introduce a new look to the site and a bit of new functionality in the next few months, hopefully making the Legume Information System more useful in your work and more comfortable to use. In the works is a gene information resource that encourages you to provide annotation and comments.\nIdeas and feedback?
