Biowine is a knowledge base of genomic data of Vitis vinifera, containing NGS data from several samples of grapevine.
Biowine provides easy access to RNA-seq data (transcripts and short non-coding RNA) from two of the main grapevine cultivars in Sicily (Nero d’Avola and Nerello Mascalese) under different conditions, and allows for computational analysis on them. The system integrates data from major data banks (KEGG Pathway, Gene Ontology, mirBase, UNIPROT, and PlantGDB), and presents elaborated information such as annotations, SNPs and gene expressions. Biowine presents statistics and results of computational tools (statistics on SNPs and gene expressions, miRNA target predictions, GO enrichments, pathways enrichments) in a user-friendly visual framework that make use of heat maps and volcano plots. Users can analyze the current genome assembly (Genoscope 12X) together with the RNA-seq data through a customized version of GBrowse.
