The Virtual Seed

Funded by the ERA-NET Plant Genomics (ERA-NET PG) consortium, vSEED is a three year project working toward a mathematical model of a germinating Arabidopsis seed. ERA-Net PG is a collaborative network composed of European ministries, funding organizations, and national research councils with research programs in the area of plant genomics (www.erapg.org).

The network currently includes 23 partners in 17 European countries. The Virtual Seed Web Resource contains web-based tools for analysis of gene expression occurring during seed maturation, dormancy and germination.
