AgBioData

AgBioData is a consortium of people working at agricultural biological databases, data archives and knowledgebases who strives to identify common issues in database development, curation, and management, with the goal of creating database products that are more Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR). Currently, there are over 150 people from 30 different databases and resources within the AgBioData consortium. We strive to promote authentic, detailed and accurate communication between all parties involved in scientific data.

For all agriculturally database personnel, we recommend joining the AgBioData consortium, attending the monthly conference call seminars, joining a working group, and working with your counterparts in other databases. A little time invested now in working together and applying common standards can save a lot of time later and prevent duplicated efforts in the development of tools and resources.

Data from: Plant strategies for maximizing growth during drought and drought recovery in Solanum melongena L. (eggplant)

    This data represents the collection of physiological and biometric data of above- and below-ground plant traits in four species of Solanum melongena of Philippine origin (PHL 4841, PHL 2778, PHL 2789, and Mara). Half of the plants were subjected to significant water deficit, and half again of those deficit plants were allowed to recover after subsequent watering. This data is suitable to serve as a benchmark for trait values in S. melongena, as well as in studies of trait responses to terminal drought and episodic drought in agricultural settings.

    MaizeGDB

      MaizeGDB is a community-oriented, long-term, federally funded informatics service to researchers focused on the crop plant and model organism Zea mays. Genomic, genetic, sequence, germplasm, gene product, metabolic pathways, functional characterization, literature reference, diversity, and expression are among the datatypes stored at MaizeGDB. At the project's website are custom interfaces enabling researchers to browse data and to seek out specific information matching explicit search criteria. First released in 1991 with the name MaizeDB, the Maize Genetics and Genomics Database, now MaizeGDB (since 2003), is funded, developed, and hosted by the USDA-ARS located at Ames, Iowa.

      National Plant Germplasm System

        The U.S. National Plant Germplasm System (NPGS) is collaborative effort to safeguard the genetic diversity of agriculturally important plants.

        Data from: Genotypic characterization of the U.S. peanut core collection

          This collection contains supplementary data for the manuscript "Genotypic characterization of the U.S. Peanut Core Collection", which describes genotyping results for the USDA peanut core collection. Supplementary files include: descriptive information about the genotyped accessions, SNP genotype calls in several formats, a phylogenetic tree calculated from the genotype data, Structure analysis, PCA analysis, and comparisons with the diploid progenitors.

          Animal Germplasm Resources Information Network (A-GRIN)

            Animal genetic resources underpin the livestock sector's production and profitability. As a result livestock industries contribute billions of dollars to national economies. The Animal Germplasm Resources Information Network (A-GRIN) mission is to acquire, evaluate and preserve these strategic resources so that industry and the research community can have access to a broad array of genetic variability for: national security, introduction of genetic variation, corrective breeding, and various research initiatives.

            SoyBase and the Soybean Breeder's Toolbox

              SoyBase is a repository for genetics, genomics and related data resources for soybean. It contains current genetic, physical and genomic sequence maps integrated with qualitative and quantitative traits.

              Pulse Crop Database Resources

                Genomic, Genetic and Breeding Resources for Pulse Crop Improvement. The Pulse Crop Database (PCD), formerly the Cool Season Food Legume Database (CSFL),contains genes, genomes, germplasm, maps, markers, QTL/MTL, species information, and transcripts. Crops supported include Adzuki bean, Bambara bean, Chickpea, Common bean, Cowpea, Faba bean, Lentil, Lupin, Pea, Pigeon pea, Vetch, and others.

                Genome Database for Rosaceae

                  Initiated in 2003, the Genome Database for Rosaceae (GDR) is a curated and integrated web-based relational database providing centralized access to Rosaceae genomics, genetics and breeding data and analysis tools to facilitate basic, translational and applied Rosaceae research.

                  National Invertebrate Genetic Resources

                    Insects impact American agriculture both as destructive and beneficial organisms. Insect pests, parasites, predators, products, and pollinators are all economically important. It is critically important to distinguish between different species, races, stocks, strains, biotypes, and other genetic entities and to document their different interactions with agriculture and the environment. The goals of the National Invertebrate Genetic Resources Program include: 1. Preservation of reference specimens 2. Maintenance of genetically important germplasm 3. Documentation of specific insect stocks 4. Management of databases 5. Distribution of material to researchers and breeders.

                    GrainGenes, the genome database for small-grain crops

                      GrainGenes is a popular repository for information about genetic maps, mapping probes and primers, genes, alleles and QTLs for the following crops: wheat, barley, rye and oat. Documentation includes such data as primer sequences, polymorphism descriptions, genotype and trait scoring data, experimental protocols used, and photographs of marker polymorphisms, disease symptoms and mutant phenotypes. These data, curated with the help of many members of the research community, are integrated with sequence and bibliographic records selected from external databases and results of BLAST searches of the ESTs.
