TERRA-REF Season 4 and 6 Sorghum phenotypes and agronomic metadata in BrAPI format: ARDN Products

    ARDN (Agricultural Research Data Network) annotations for "TERRA-REF Season 4 and 6 Sorghum phenotypes and agronomic metadata in BrAPI format". The ARDN project ([https://data.nal.usda.gov/ardn](https://data.nal.usda.gov/ardn)) is a network of datasets harmonized and aggregated using the ICASA vocabulary, as recommended by USDA NAL ([https://data.nal.usda.gov/data-dictionary-examples](https://data.nal.usda.gov/data-dictionary-examples)) and described in detail here: [www.tinyurl.com/icasa-mvl](www.tinyurl.com/icasa-mvl) This data represents a small subset of the TERRA-REF release available on Dryad (LeBauer et al 2020), including harvested biomass for each cultivar, plot location, planting date, harvest date, fertilizer application, genotype / accession names and metadata, and additional agronomic management metadata for a population of Sorghum bicolor evaluated over two growing seasons. The data can be accessed through a BrAPI-compliant endpoint at terraref.org/brapi. This dataset is a snapshot of the TERRA-REF BrAPI endpoint contents, representing the minimum data and metadata required to run a crop model.

    Data from polishCLR: Example input genome assemblies

      In order to produce the best possible *de novo*, chromosome-scale genome assembly from error prone Pacific BioSciences continuous long reads (CLR) reads, we developed a publicly available, flexible and reproducible workflow that is containerized so it can be run on any conventional HPC, called polishCLR. This dataset provides example input primary contig assemblies to test and reproduce the demonstrated utility of our workflow.


        The Russian-English Agricultural Atlas is the world’s most comprehensive source of information on the geographic distribution of plant-based agriculture in Russia and neighboring countries. The Atlas contains 1500 maps that illustrate the distribution of 100 crops, 560 wild crop relatives, 640 diseases, pests and weeds, and 200 environmental parameters. Additionally, the Atlas provides detailed biological descriptions, illustrations, metadata and reference lists. Currently, individual maps can be downloaded and viewed using freely available AgroAtlas GIS Utility software, which can also be downloaded at this site.

        Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm-II

          This code is implements the nondominated sorting genetic algorithm (NSGA-II) in the R statistical programming language. The function is theoretically applicable to any number of objectives without modification. The function automatically detects the number of objectives from the population matrix used in the function call. NSGA-II has been applied in ARS research for automatic calibration of hydrolgic models (whittaker link) and economic optimization (whittaker link).
