BrassicaInfoThe Brassica rapa genome browser has been developed through a joint effort by the Ensembl Genomes group and Rothamsted Research. From release 13 of Ensembl Genomes, the EBI will be maintaining the genome browser for B. rapa in the context of Ensembl Plants.

Rothamsted Research Acknowledges:

  • BBSRC for funding (grant number BB/E017797/1)
  • Ian Bancroft and Martin Trick at the John Innes Centre for providing the gene annotation.
  • Nick James and Sean May (NASC) for their assistance in establishing BrassEnsembl.
