Genome sequence(s) of chickpea (Cicer arietinum)

The June issue of Plant Journal features the new draft sequence of a 'desi-type' chickpea genome. You might recall that another group recently published a draft whole genome shotgun sequence of a 'kabuli' chickpea variety in Nature Biotechnology.

You can read an interesting commentary on these on the AoB blog .

The latest Plant Ontology Paper is available online from Plant and Cell Physiology

We just heard the news that the recent Plant Ontology Paper is available online from Plant and Cell Physiology: http://pcp.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2012/12/05/pcp.pcs163.abstra...

Right now it is just the abstract with a link to the full text accepted proof. But it has been assigned a DOI, in case you would like to cite it.
