The Compositae Genome Project
Allow me to introduce you to the Compositae. Perhaps you already know them—members of the Compositae family include asters, daisies, and sunflowers. If you wish to get to know them on a more intimate (aka genetic) level, then you should visit the website for The Compositae Genome Project. The database provides sequence information, photos, and genetic maps for a number of species, while the “bioinformatics tools” page provides links to various genomics tools. Among these are the GenomePixelizer, a tool to linearly display genomes to illustrate the relationships between genes, and the PhyloGrapher, a graph drawing tool to study evolutionary relationships within families of homologous genes. This website offers plenty of ways to learn more about this flowery family.
