Greetings Arabidopsis researchers!
What's new in Araport
(1) We are pleased to announce the official release of the latest Arabidopsis genome reannotation effort “Araport11” (dated June 20, 2016). The Araport11 dataset is now available via ThaleMine, JBrowse, Downloads, and Science Apps. A draft manuscript describing the Araport11 annotation can be found at http://dx.doi.org/10.1101/047308.

About Araport (https://www.araport.org)
Araport aims to provide Arabidopsis and plant scientists direct access to a new generation web-based data platform. In a nutshell, users can browse and analyze a wide array of data through Araport, and can also publish their own modules for sharing data with the community or building analysis workflows. Araport also assumed the responsibility for updating and revising genome annotation (Araport11) and the reference genome sequence.
ThaleMine (https://apps.araport.org/thalemine/). A data warehouse for browsing gene reports, running gene list enrichment analysis, exporting data tables, and saving or sharing work.
JBrowse (https://apps.araport.org/jbrowse/?data=arabidopsis). A genome browser hosting close to 100 data tracks including population variant data from the 1001 Genomes Project. Users can also upload and view their own data for side-by-side comparison.
Science Apps (https://www.araport.org/apps/catalog). A growing collection of data or analysis modules that will serve as building blocks for creating discovery workflows.
Araport11 (https://www.araport.org/data/araport11). Comprehensive updates to Col-0 genome annotation including gene structures and functional annotation.
Tutorials (https://www.araport.org/tutorials). Video tutorials for assessing ThaleMine and JBrowse data.
