Species

Common Name Species Description
Arabidopsis Arabidopsis thaliana

Arabidopsis serves as the model species for plants.  It has a wealth of both genetic and genomic resources.  The networks provided on this site were produced using publicly available samples of the Affymetrix ATH1 array.  Two types of networks are currently available  The first is a set of networks created by manually segregating input samples into categories by tissue type.  The second is a knowledge-independent sorting of if input samples into groups of similar expression.  (Photo by Sui-setz).
Click "Networks" in the "Resources" menu to the right to view a list of all networks for this species. In summary, the following networks are available:

  • The arabidopsis global gene co-expression network v1.0
  • Arabidopsis K90 GIL-collection--a set of 86 networks built from pre-clustering of input samples.
  • Arabidopsis Tissue networks--a set of 9 networks built from manual pre-clustering of samples by tissue type.
Rice Oryza sativa

Rice is one of the most important staple crops and serves as the model species for the Poaceae family of grasses.  It is rich in both genomic and genetic resources.  This site provides several co-expression networks for rice derived from publicly available samples using the Affymetrix GeneChip Rice Genome array.   Genetic data from mutational studies, QTLs and GWAS have been incorporated to help explore the multi-functional behavior of genes.

  • The rice global gene co-expression network v1.0
  • Rice K25 GIL-collection--a set of 22 networks built from pre-clustering of input samples.
Maize Zea mays

Maize is one of the world's most imporant food crops.  Maize was used for pioneering research in genetics but currently lags behind rice in terms of resources for systems genetics studies.  Maize serves as a  candidate for network translational studies as associations implied in the rice networks may be translated to maize.  The gene co-expression network for maize has been constructed from publicly available samples of the Affymetrix Maize Genome array.

  • The Maize v1.0 global gene co-expression network
