For over ten years, BIOBASE has offered researchers high quality, 
manually curated databases of relevant scientific literature, including 
TRANSFAC® and YPD^(TM), which save researchers time by offering easy 
access to the essential data they need to perform their analyses.  We 
also offer gene expression analysis tools and software.

We thought you may find our latest plant focused products useful in your 

The BIOBASE Knowledge Library^(TM): Plant Edition*

BKL PLANT is a resource for researchers studying crop optimization, 
disease resistance, stress tolerance and other areas of plant research, 
and contains:

.          Protein information representing over 100 plant species, 
including Arabidopsis, rice, and maize

.          Manually curated ontology assignments to capture biological 
and molecular function, cellular localization, gene and protein 
expression, and phenotype details

.          In-depth gene regulation data, signaling / metabolic 
pathways, and more

*ExPlain^(TM) PLANT*

The ExPlain^(TM) Analysis Platform provides users the ability to 
generate hypotheses regarding the upstream cause(s) (Key Molecules such 
as kinases, adaptor proteins, receptors, etc.) of observed gene 
expression changes.

.          Access over 50,000 promoters combined from Arabidopsis and 
rice representing nearly 60 matrices

.          Link to detailed promoter binding site and matrix information

.          Use microarray, ChIP-chip, or proteomics data to build 
upstream and downstream pathways

.          Go beyond traditional microarray analysis to find 
non-differentially expressed factors influencing gene expression

.          Use BKL-Plant pathway data for upstream and downstream target 
analysis or supplement with your own interaction data
