Just in time for the 19th ICAR: cross-species expression viewing at the
Bio-Array Resource (BAR)! We have precomputed all orthologs between poplar
and Arabidopsis using OrthoMCL. In the output eFP Browser page for a given
Arabidopsis gene, if there are poplar orthologs then links to a poplar
developmental series eFP Browser are provided, to help with the
identification of the corresponding poplar functional ortholog. We also
provide links to the sequence alignments between a given Arabidopsis gene
and its poplar ortholog(s).
The cross-species feature and the Poplar eFP Browser are available at
htpp://bar.utoronto.ca. The data for the Poplar eFP Browser come from Olivia
Wilkins in the Campbell Laboratory at the University of Toronto, and will be
the subject of a forthcoming publication. Thanks to Hardeep Nahal and Justin
Foong for implementing the Poplar eFP Browser.
Best regards and hope to see you in Montreal!
