To integrate the genomic information of the rice pan-genome, we performed comparative analyses and established a user-friendly Rice Gene Index (RGI, https://riceome.hzau.edu.cn) platform with 16 platinum standard reference genomes and supplementary transcriptome data. To logically organize and scientifically the index of 744,233 genes among rice accessions, we detected 112,658 Ortholog Gene Indices, and provide ‘GeneCard’ pages to query genomic, transcriptomic, and homology information for each gene. The RGI allows users to search for relationships and comprehensive information of genes in keyword-based, sequence-based, and relationship-based ways. Furthermore, users can visualize these relationships at local and global scales corresponding to ‘Microcollinearity’ and ‘Macrocollinearity’ modules.
