Next-Gen sequence databases: RNA and genomic informatics resources for plants (Plant Physiol)

Drawing on more than 15 years of improvements, Nakano et al. have released public websites and resources for data access, display, and analysis of plant small RNAs, from Arabidopsis to wheat and with many crops and model species represented. The tools can analyze, integrate and display the abundance of small RNAs, RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq data, as well as a new viewer and a query page for the analysis of phased small RNAs. This manuscript introduces these new, improved resources, which are accessible at (Summary by Mary Williams) Plant Physiol. 10.1104/pp.19.00957
