A Database for Triticeae and Avena
CMap is the official map display for the new GrainGenes database, GrainGenes
SQL. It also allows the maps to be compared side by side much more satisfactorily.
Currently GrainGenes CMap includes two Data Sources:
Data Source GrainGenes
contains the same set of maps that can be viewed with the ACEDB map display
in GrainGenes Classic. The two databases are synchronized weekly.
Data Source Wheat Composite contains the composite wheat map
Rudi Appels, integrating twelve maps and 3700 loci. Nine
of the component maps are also included so you can line them up
next to the composite map and see the differences in marker order that
exist. This is the same process Rudi is using to build and refine the
composite map. Many more current maps are available at
Rudi's Genica site.
We thank Ken Youens-Clark, Ben Faga, Gramene and GMOD for the fine
comparative map display software CMap and for its ongoing improvements.
CMap is free software from the GMOD project.
