BLAST against multiple data sets at: Customized searches starting with sequence:
NCBI, MaizeGDB, PlantGDB, Grassius, PLEXdb, DFCI Gene Indices and more
  • Insertional mutants and seed stock (Ac/Ds, TILLING, UniformMu, ...)
  • Transcription factors from Grassius
  • Loci and phenotypes associated with sequence
