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.

AgBioData Datasets

33 datasets

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.

        The Triticeae Toolbox

          [The Triticeae Toolbox](https://triticeaetoolbox.org/) (T3) webportal hosts data generated by the Triticeae Coordinated Agricultural Project (CAP), funded by the National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). T3 contains SNP, phenotypic, and pedigree data from wheat and barley germplasm in the Triticeae CAP integrating rapidly expanding DNA marker and sequence data with traditional phenotypic data.

          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.

              PeanutBase

                PeanutBase ([peanutbase.org](https://peanutbase.org)) is the primary genetics and genomics database for cultivated peanut and its wild relatives. It houses information about genome sequences, genes and predicted functions, genetic maps, markers, links to germplasm resources, and maps of peanut germplasm origins.

                Cassavabase

                  The Next Generation Cassava Breeding (NEXTGEN Cassava) project aims to significantly increase the rate of genetic improvement in cassava breeding and unlock the full potential of cassava, a staple crop central to food security and livelihoods across Africa. The project will implement and empirically test a new breeding method known as Genomic Selection that relies on statistical modeling to predict cassava performance before field-testing, and dramatically accelerates the breeding cycle.

                  i5K Workspace@NAL

                    The i5k Workspace @ NAL is a platform for communities around ‘orphaned’ arthropod genome projects to access, visualize, curate and disseminate their data.

                    TreeGenes

                      The TreeGenes database provides custom informatics tools to manage the flood of information resulting from high-throughput genomics projects in forest trees from sample collection to downstream analysis. This resource is enhanced with systems that are well connected with federated databases, automated data flows, machine learning analysis, standardized annotations and quality control processes. The database itself contains several curated modules that support the storage of data and provide the foundation for web-based searches and visualization tools.
