Abstract


We have constructed an integrated genome browser database for sequence analysis of rice (Oryza sativa) and Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa) genomes. The genome browser for Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) was included to provide the comparative analysis with Chinese cabbage. The
genome browser of rice provides a variety of alternate views of the data in 12 chromosomes. Constructed from a supercontig using 3,360 BACs, it shows information about individual genes with functional annotation in the whole chromosome. In addition, the rice genome browser provides specific
analysis of the genome by Gene Ontology (GO), single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), Align, Text, Mart, BLAST and Export data views. In the comparative genome analysis between the Arabidopsis and Chinese cabbage genomes, users can obtain information using comparative genomics methods and identify missing regions within a single genome.
