Useful links
Enormous amount of data exists on internet, often hidden in numerous databases. This link provides selection of some useful links for every plant stress biologists...
Teaching can be tough. But with some of these tools and resources, teaching can be also fun!
TED: Ideas worth spreading (plenty of interesting video talks that can be used for teaching or simply learning English) 

Teaching tools in Plant Biology by The Plant Cell (excellent series of Power Point-ready presentations on numerouss topics in plant biology) REGISTRATION REQUIRED!

伝わるデザイン (研究発表のユニバーサルデザイン、lesson for presentation design in Japanese) 

Plant stress responses  (features latest research and news from Nature journals on Plant Stress topics)

Plants in action  (a resource for teachers and students of plant science)


RiceXPro (contains rice field microarray data, hormone treatment data, co-expression tools...) 
The Rice Annotation Project (RAP-DB) (annotation of rice genome sequence from the International Rice Genome Sequencing Project; it uses locus identifier type: e.g., Os01g0532600) 

Rice genome annotation project (MSU-NSF rice genome annotation project; it uses locus identifier type: e.g., LOC_Os01g34850) 
ID converter (converts MSU to RAP names of rice genes, e.g., LOC_Os01g34850 to Os01g0532600 , and vice versa) 

Metlin (comprehensive and searchable metabolite database; requires simple free registration) 

IPK Barley BLAST Server (BLAST for barley genome and genes) 
beX-db (Barley Gene Expression Database) 
EnsemblPlants (Genome annotation analysis for many species) 
GrainGenes (A Database for Triticeae and Avena) 
PLEXdb (Gene expression resources for plants and plant pathogens) 

online tools
Buying specialized software can be expensive. Here are our tips for some free online tools for everyday use. 
Sequence Manipulation Suite (many free online tools for working with DNA and protein sequences, such as filtering, reverse complement, translation, etc.) 
Primer3 (PCR primer design) (Robust phylogenetic analysis for the non-specialist)
