From the Arabidopsis newsletter (
Hello Arabidopsis Researchers,
The Bio-Array Resource at http://bar.utoronto.ca is pleased to announce several improvements for working with Arabidopsis functional genomics data using its tools.
1. More linking between tools: we have enabled small icons in the outputs of our eFP Browser to subcellular localization, protein-protein interaction, and annotation data. These icons are active only if the corresponding information is present. Our eFP and Cell eFP Browsers are now also directly accessible as LinkOuts from NCBI's GenBank records for Arabidopsis genes and proteins.
2. Classification SuperViewer now with p-values and MapMan categories: we have improved our Classification SuperViewer for functionally categorizing lists of genes. Now you can use either GO terms or MapMan bins from the Usadel laboratory to classify your genes of interest. We have also included a p-value score for each term, in addition to an enrichment or depletion score.
3. DataMetaFormatter now includes automatic calculation of enrichment for GO categories for your electronic Northern queries. In addition, we have improved the ability to explore long heatmap outputs by allowing the information panel to be detached from the top of the page.
Subcellular localization data are from SUBA (Heazlewood et a., 2007) from A.
Harvey Millar's lab at the University of Western Australia. MapMan bin data are from the Usadel lab at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Plant Physiology in Germany (Thimm et al., 2004; Usadel et al., 2005).
We are experimenting with displaying Google ads on several of our pages to help fund the BAR. Thanks for your understanding and thanks to Robert Breit for his work on the improvements described above. As always, comments are welcome.
All the best in 2010,
