AgBase

    [AgBase](https://agbase.arizona.edu/index.html) Version 2.0 is a curated, open-source, Web-accessible resource for functional analysis of agricultural plant and animal gene products including gene ontology annotations. Its long-term goal is to serve the needs of the agricultural research communities by facilitating post-genome biology for agriculture researchers and for those researchers primarily using agricultural species as biomedical models. AgBase uses controlled vocabularies developed by the Gene Ontology (GO) Consortium to describe molecular function, biological process, and cellular component for genes and gene products in agricultural species.

    FINDMAP

      The findmap.f90 program aligns sequence reads to reference map, calls previous variants, and identifies new variants.

      FINDHAP

        The findhap.f90 program finds haplotypes and imputes genotypes using multiple chip sets and sequence data.

        SPUR2

          SPUR2 DOS ver. 2.2 is a general grassland ecosystem simulation model designed to determine beef cattle performance and production by simultaneously simulating production of up to 15 plant species on 36 heterogeneous grassland sites. SPUR2 simulates grassland hydrology, nitrogen cycling, and soil organic matter on grazed ecosystems as well as rangeland production under different climatic regimes, environmental conditions, and management alternatives.

          Data from: Genome of the small hive beetle (Aethina tumida, Coleoptera: Nitidulidae), a worldwide parasite of social bee colonies, provides insights into detoxification and herbivory

            The small hive beetle (Aethina tumida, ATUMI) is an invasive parasite of bee colonies. ATUMI feeds on both fruits and bee nest products, facilitating its spread and increasing its impact on honey bees and other pollinators. The ATUMI genome has been sequenced and annotated, providing the first genomic resources for this species and for the Nitidulidae.

            Vaccination Against Lawsonia intracellularis Decreases Shedding of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium in Co-Infected Pigs and Alters the Gut Microbiome

              *Salmonella enterica* is a leading cause of foodborne illness worldwide and pork can serve a source of infection. In this study, we investigated if vaccinating pigs against L*awsonia intracellularis*, a common pathogen of swine that has previously been shown to favor *Salmonella enterica* infection, confers protection against *Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium*. We investigated the underlying changes in the gut microbiome mediated by single *S. Typhiumurium* infection compared to co-infection with *L. intracellularis* as well as the effect of vaccination on the microbiome.
