Data from: Metagenomic and near full-length 16S rRNA sequence data in support of the phylogenetic analysis of the rumen bacterial community in steers

Amplicon sequencing utilizing next-generation platforms has significantly transformed how research is conducted, specifically microbial ecology. However, primer and sequencing platform biases can confound or change the way scientists interpret these data. The Pacific Biosciences RSII instrument may also preferentially load smaller fragments, which may also…

The Porcine Translational Research Database

This database contains functional information on genes commonly studied in humans, pigs, and rodents, including more than 2,300 sequenced at DGIL. Each entry has been manually-annotated and is linked to other porcine databases as well as Homologene, InnateDb and Gene Ontology. 


Gramene is a curated, open-source, integrated data resource for comparative functional genomics in crops and model plant species.

AgAR (Agricultural Antibiotic Resistance)

An Environmental Component of a "One Health" approach, the mission of the Agricultural Antibiotic Resistance (AgAR) project is to

  • develop practical tools and protocols to measure antibiotic drugs, resistant bacteria and resistance genes in agriculturally-impacted soil, water, air, and food;
  • design and evaluate agricultural

Data from: Color Analysis of Sweetpotato Leaves from the USDA, ARS Germplasm Collection

For this study, 737 sweetpotato accessions were obtained from the USDA, ARS, PGRCU, Griffin, GA. Each PI was grown in the field in replicated plots at the U. S. Vegetable Laboratory, Charleston, SC. The mature leaves of each PI was collected and measured using a Konica Minolta Chroma Meter (CR 400). Data were recorded using CIE 1976 L*a*b* and CIE L*C*h* color spaces. Data from this study is contained in a manuscript that will be submitted to Genetic Resources and Crop Evolution under the title "Color Analysis of Sweetpotato Leaves from the USDA, ARS Germplasm Collection." Data parameters collected were lightness (L*), red-green coordinate (a*), yellow-blue coordinate (b*), color intensity or chroma (C*), and hue angle (h*).

Musa Germplasm Information System

The Musa Germplasm Information System (MGIS) contains key information on Musa germplasm diversity, including passport data, botanical classification, morpho-taxonomic descriptors, molecular studies, plant photographs and GIS information on 4616 accessions managed in 21 collections around the world, making it the most extensive source of information on banana genetic resources.


Animal Trait Correlation Database (CorrDB)

A genetic correlation is the proportion of shared variance between two traits that is due to genetic causes; a phenotypic correlation is the degree to which two traits co-vary among individuals in a population. In the genomics era, while gene expression, genetic association, and network analysis provide unprecedented means to decode the genetic basis of complex phenotypes, it is important to recognize the possible effects genetic progress in one trait can have on other traits. This database is designed to collect all published livestock genetic/phenotypic trait correlation data, aimed at facilitating genetic network analysis or systems biology studies.
