Abbreviation: GR-TAX

General Information
It is a representation of the taxonomy tree in the ontology format. Each term in this ontology can represent subspecies, species, genus, order, class or any rank in the classification. Primarily derived from NCBI Taxonomy, the revisions were made as and when/where required in the rankings. The rank of genome types was added by this project. This taxonomy ontology focuses on the Poaceae (Gramineae) family of plant taxonomy only.

Implementing Databases (1)
Gramene, a comparative mapping resource for grains
Gramene's purpose is to provide added value to data sets available within the public sector, which will facilitate researchers' ability to understand the grass genomes and take advantage of genomic sequence known in one species for identifying and understanding corresponding genes, pathways and phenotypes in other grass species.
