The aim of this Oryza sativa database was first to display sequence information resulting from the activities of our group, such as the T-DNA and Ds flanking sequence tags (FSTs) produced in the framework of the French genomics initiative Genoplante and the EU consortium Cereal Gene Tags. Later, we decided to link this information with related molecular data from external rice molecular resources (cDNA full length, Gene, EST, Markers, Expression data...).

Genome Browser (Gbrowse), a Web-based application for displaying genomic annotations and other features, is the core of our database. The reference annotation layer consists in the 12 rice pseudomolecules (Version 7.0, 0ctober 2011). All the data are superposed as annotations layers and positioned with respect to these pseudomolecules.

We developed a set of tools around GBrowse to retrieve as exhaustively as possible information related to queries with several starting points. These tools allow a molecular geneticist to readily find insertion lines (T-DNA, Tos17, Ds) in genes of interest and to retrieve all the associated annotations related to these sequences.

Release 7 - Unified Rice Pseudomolecules
The 12 rice pseudomolecule sequences are now common to both the MSU Rice Genome Annotation Project and the Rice Annotation Project Database (RAP-DB)/International Rice Genome Sequencing Project. This effort was undertaken in order to allow researchers to easily compare annotations from both the MSU and RAP-DB projects. Gene loci, gene models and associated annotations created by MSU-RAP and RAP-DB were independently derived, but the pseudomolecules used by the two rice annotation projects to generated those annotations are now identical and can be easily compared.

TAIR10 Genome Release (November 2010)

Archipelago version 4 - July 2009
is out-It contains 639 new pieces of information for 562 rice genes- 271 pieces of information are new as compared to previous release- This release includes data from Kaku et al (PNAS 2006) and Kimoto-Tomiyama et al (PMB 2003) dealing with rice response to chitin elicitor as well as data from Zhao et al (TAG 2008) dealing with genes responsive to the fngal pathogen Rhizoctonia solani.
