Developed and curated by
Gramene database and the Sorghum Biomass/Feedstock project
None available.

Developed by the Gramene database and the Sorghum Biomass/Feedstock project, SorghumCyc is a catalog of known and/or predicted biochemical pathways from Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor). Pathways and genes presented in this catalog are primarily based on the annotations carried out by Gramene database project on the release 1.4 of the JGI-assembly of Sorghum bicolor cv. BTx623 genome. The database was created using the Pathway Tools PathoLogic module developed by Peter D. Karp and coworkers at the Bioinformatics Research Group at SRI International. Thsi is a beta 1.0 version release of the SorghumCyc. In future the database will undergo regular rounds of curation in order to integrate exciting new discoveries on biochemical pathways in sorghum as well as to promote the plant researchers to use the novel pathways discovered by our prediction protcols for their research programs. The computationally generated pathways will be subjected to manual curation based on published literature.

Since the functions of many of the sorghum genes are either provided by homology and/or HMM based predictions, many of the pathways might be incomplete or may contain errors. The manual curation of pathways is a planned activity and we welcome feedback from the research community.

If you notice any problems or errors on the pathways, please send a message to SorghumCyc curators or by clicking the 'Feedback' button at the top right corner of this page or on the bottom of the respective pathway display page.
