With equipment of last generation, scientists linked to FAPESP Program for Research on Bioenergy (BIOEN) begin to decipher genome of sugar cane. Read the news Pontapé inicial (Authorship: Agência FAPESP).
SUGARCANE FUNCTIONAL GENOMICS DATABASE
Last Updated on Monday, 25 February 2013 17:57
The largest collection of Sugarcane ESTs was generated by SUCEST, a large consortium of Brazilian researchers who sequenced approximately 238,000 ESTs from 26 diverse cDNA libraries (Vettore et al. 2003). A Functional Genomics phase of the project followed the initial sequencing effort and a database was created to integrate sequences, gene expression data, gene categories and data mining tools which may allow comprehensive acceess to sugarcane genomics resources.
