The Bio-Analytic Resource for Plant Biology

Welcome to the Bio-Analytic Resource - the BAR! Below are user-friendly web-based tools for working with functional genomics and other data. Most are designed with the plant (mainly Arabidopsis) reseacher in mind, but a couple of them can be useful to the wider research community, e.g. Mouse eFP Browser and Human eFP Browser or BlastDigester. Click on the icon to read the partner paper to a given tool. Mouse-over a given link for further information.
