Abstract

Seed dormancy and germination involve the concerted operation of molecular and biochemical programmes. It has become feasible to study these processes in great detail, using the current methods for transcriptome, proteome and metabolome analysis. Yet, the large amounts of data generated by these methods are often dazzling and demand efficient tools for data visualization. We have used the freely available PageMan/MapMan package (http://MapMan.gabipd.org) to visualize transcriptome and metabolome changes in Arabidopsis thaliana seeds during dormancy and germination. Using this package we developed two seed-specific MapMan pathways, which efficiently capture the most important molecular processes in seeds. The results demonstrated the usefulness of the PageMan/MapMan package for seed research.
