ePlant Genetics

EPlant - Genetics made fun

After identifying plants in TOAST we often use EPlant to help us understand the potential role of those genes. Bioinformatic tools like this allow us to model how the genomes respond to environmental stimuli. True to the central dogma of genetics, genes are transcribed to mRNA which are then translated into proteins. These proteins then function in interactome networks that in different distinct sub-cellular sites. The EPlant software is really easy to use and a useful tool in any AstroBotany Bioinformatics Class. Find out more about this awesome tool by reading Waese et al., (2017) or follow this link give it ago!.


The TOAST data mining collaboration

Please use TOAST, ePlant and related bioinformatic tools to identify your gene.

Then please let us know what it is and why you fin it so interesting?

The goal of this system is to allow students, teachers and researchers to share their ideas and insights with each other.
