BLAST interface and Browser released for latest maize B73 genome assembly The Maize Genome Sequencing Consortium's version 2 assembly of the maize B73 genome is now available at Phytozome for BLASTing and browsing. This assembly version, B73 RefGen_v2, has yet to be annotated, but we have mapped the 4a.53 annotation onto the new assembly. Please see the maize v2 info page for more information.

Peach genome released. Access to the Assembled Peach Genome is now available via Gbrowse and BLAST at Phytozome, the Genome Database for Rosaceae, and the Instituto di Genomics Applicata. Please see the peach information page for more information and links to tools.

Phytozome v5.0 released. Version 5.0 of Phytozome is now available, and incorporates both updated and newly released plant genomes. Eighteen genomes (eleven of which were sequenced at the Joint Genome Institute) are clustered into gene families defined at 15 evolutionarily significant nodes. Genomes newly incorporated into Phytozome include Mimulus guttatus (monkey flower), Cucumis sativus (cucumber), Ricinis comunis (castor bean),and Manihot esculenta (cassava), the latter having been part of a limited release in v4.1. Updated genomes include the long anticipated v2.0 release of Populus trichocarpa (poplar), Arabidopsis thaliana, Medicago truncatula, Oryza sative (rice), and Chlamydomans reinhardtii. Please see the details page for more information on these genomes.

Pseudomolecule maize assembly and annotation now available at Phytozome. Maize version 4a.53 Pseudomolecule assembly and annotation from is now available for browsing and BLASTing. Also included are 454 shotgun reads from maize variant Mo17, aligned directly against the genome as well as aligned after Newbler pre-assembly.
9 Nov 2009
Cassava genome released. Version 1.1 of the Cassava (Manihot esculenta) assembly and annotation is now available for download, browsing and BLAST searching. It will be included in gene families in Phytozome version 5.0. More information and links are available here
