The CRISPR Genome Analysis Tool (CGAT) is a web-based utility that facilitates the rapid prediction of TALEN and CRISPR target sites constructs by quickly identifying target sites for either editing methodology. Click here to visit CRISPR Genome Analysis Tool.
maize-GAMER is a collaborative project to improve the status of gene functional annotation in maize. The project has 3 areas of focus, namely functional annotation of maize genes, evaluation of the annotations using a gold standard, and a review system for community curation of maize functional annotation.

We develop computational systems and tools that enable researchers to leverage plant genetics and genomics information to better understand basic biology and effect crop improvement. Group members are specifically interested in functional prediction for genes, predictive phenomics, and how gene and chromosome architecture regulate cellular processes. Although work by group members is not specifically limited to maize, it is by far our favorite model system.
