ready Gramene Taxonomy Ontology

Abbreviation: GR-TAX

General Information
Gramene Taxonomy Ontology (GR-TAX) 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.

Gramene: A curated, open-source, integrated data resource for comparative functional genomics in plants
Gramene's purpose is to provide added value to plant genomics data sets available within the public sector, which will facilitate researchers' ability to understand the plant genomes and take advantage of genomic sequence known in one species for identifying and understanding corresponding genes, pathways and phenotypes in other plant species. It represents a broad spectrum of species ranging from unicellular photo-autotrophs, algae, monocots, dicots and other important taxonomic clades. Within Plant Reactome, a database portal of Gramene, there are over 60 plant genomes as well as pathways for more than 80 species.
