Dear Arabidopsis researcher colleagues.
As many of you may now already know the complete sequence and
analysis of the Arabidopsis thaliana genome is now available. In Nature
today there are articles describing the analysis of the whole genome
and the remaining three chromosomes.
Arabidopsis, as a model plant system, may be used for the genomics
aspects of some of your projects and can be used to anchor ESTs and
other genetic features to what may consist of the most basic plant
The bioinformaticians at MIPS would like to advertise to
the plant community, and all other biologists, the comprehensive
resources now available only at MIPS.
The URL : http://mips.gsf.de/proj/thal/
will take you to pages where the complete sequence and complete
annotation of the Arabidopsis genome is available along with
additional analyses using a comprehensive variety of bioinformatic
resources. Search functionality has been implemented to assist in your
retrieval of information that may be pertinent to your research.
We hope that the pages may be of interest to you and the rest of the
Thanks and Regards
The Arabidopsis group at MIPS
