• Thanks to close collaboration with cowpea researchers at UC Riverside, the Vigna unguiculata genome and annotations recently released in Phytozome are now available through the browsing and search interfaces in LIS, subject to the same data release policies described here. Genomic and genetic data for cowpea have also been made available through the newly released CowpeaMine.
  • Management and display of expression data has been enhanced with new visualizations in gene pages for displaying
    expression of genes from the same gene family and for displaying the expression of genes with similar expression profiles.
    1. A chickpea gene predominantly expressed in the reproductive tissues and another predominantly in the vegetative tissues with a family member also showing a similar expression profile.

    2. Flower-specific expression of a peroxidase super family gene in common bean and another one predominantly expressed in the root.
