Tripal DevSeed is a project for getting data loaded into Chado for your Tripal site quickly and easily. It comes with a 200-gene dataset for Fraxinus excelsior, located in /Fexcel_mini. Additionally, it includes the scripts used to download, minify, and annotate this dataset, located in create_seed. Use these scripts to quickly re-create the F. excelsior dataset, or to create your own.

See the description and credits for the full dataset on Hardwoods Genomics Project.

File description


landmark (scaffold), mRNA, and protein FASTA files. An aligned Newick format tree of the mRNA (mrna_mini.fasta.tree)


Format: Contig0 FRAEX38873_v2 gene 16315 44054 . + . ID=FRAEX38873_v2_000000010;Name=FRAEX38873_v2_000000010;biotype=protein_coding


BLAST annotation of mRNA against the SWISSPROT and TrEMBL databases.


Interproscan annotations using the protein files, in tsv and xml format.


20 biomaterials (biosamples) randomly generated with the python script generate_biomaterials.py.


Expression data corresponding to the above biosamples. Included as matrix format files. Created with the python script generate_expression.py.


KEGG annotations generated using the KEGG BLAST KOALA web tool.
