NWRC Chemical Effects Database

    The NWRC Chemical Effects Database is a searchable database that contains bioassay records and data for chemicals analyzed and evaluated for repellency, toxicity, reproductive inhibition, and immobilization. Studies were conducted from 1943 to 1987 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Wildlife Research Center (NWRC), its predecessors, and by the U.S. Geological Survey's Patuxent Wildlife Research Center (PWRC) (formerly part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service). The online database comprises published data only. The entire database, including unpublished data, is currently searchable by NWRC staff.

    National Microbial Germplasm Program

      The goal of the National Microbial Germplasm Program is to ensure that the genetic diversity of agriculturally important microorganisms is maintained to enhance and increase agricultural efficiency and profitability. The program collects, authenticates, and characterizes potentially useful microbial germplasm; preserves microbial genetic diversity; and facilitates distribution and utilization of microbial germplasm for research and industry.

      Data from: USBombus, Contemporary Survey Data of North American Bumble Bees (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Bombus) Distributed in the United States

        US*Bombus* is a large dataset that represents the outcomes of the largest standardized survey of bee pollinators (*Hymenoptera*, *Apidae*, *Bombus*) on the planet. The motivation to collect live bumble bees across the US was to document the decline and conservation status of *Bombus affinis*, *B. occidentalis*, *B. pensylvanicus*, and *B. terricola*. This dataset documents a total of 17,796 adult occurrence records across 391 locations and 38 species of *Bombus*. The geospatial coverage of the dataset extends across 41 of the 50 US states and from 0 to 3500 m a.s.l. The temporal scale of the dataset represents systematic surveys that took place from 2007 to 2010. The dataset was developed using SQL server 2008 r2. For each specimen, the following information is generally provided: species name, sex, caste, temporal and geospatial details, Cartesian coordinates, data collector(s), and when available, host plants. This database has already proven useful for a variety of studies on bumble bee ecology and conservation. Considering the value of pollinators in agriculture and wild ecosystems, this large systematic collection of bumble bee occurrence records will likely prove useful in investigations into the effects of anthropogenic activities on pollinator community composition and conservation status.

        USDA Foreign Agricultural Service Market and Trade Data

          FAS’s PSD (Production, Supply and Distribution) Online data for those commodities published in the WASDE Report are reviewed and updated monthly by an interagency committee chaired by USDA’s World Agricultural Outlook Board (WAOB), and consisting of: the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), the Economic Research Service (ERS), the Farm Service Agency (FSA), and the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS). The international portion of the data is updated with input from agricultural attachés stationed at U.S. embassies around the world, FAS commodity analysts, and country and commodity analysts with ERS. The U.S. domestic component is updated with input from analysts in FAS, ERS, the National Agricultural Statistical Service, and FSA. Interagency work on the database is carried out under the aegis of the WAOB. The official USDA supply and use data is published monthly in: WAOB, World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE); in the foreign agricultural commodity circular series issued by FAS; and in the regional situation and outlook reports and monthly commodity newsletters of ERS (see keywords Crops and Animal Products) data for horticultural products are usually published twice a year.

          The Organic INTEGRITY Database

            The Organic INTEGRITY Database is a certified organic operations database that contains up-to-date and accurate information about operations that may and may not sell as organic, deterring fraud, increases supply chain transparency for buyers and sellers, and promotes market visibility for organic operations.

            Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)

              For researchers and application developers who want to utilize Summer meal site data, FNS provides an option to download a CSV (Comma Separated Values) file and also connect directly to an API (Application Program Interface) of the site.

              LANDFIRE

                LANDFIRE (LF), Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools, is a shared program between the wildland fire management programs of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service and U.S. Department of the Interior, providing landscape scale geo-spatial products to support cross-boundary planning, management, and operations. LANDFIRE is a program that provides over 20 national geo-spatial layers (e.g. vegetation, fuel, disturbance, etc.), databases, and ecological models that are available to the public for the US and insular areas.

                Maize Genetics Cooperation Stock Center Catalog of Stocks

                  The Maize Genetics Cooperation Stock Center is operated by USDA/ARS, located at the University of Illinois, Urbana/Champaign, and integrated with the National Plant Germplasm System (NPGS). The center serves the maize research community by collecting, maintaining and distributing seeds of maize genetic stocks, and providing information about maize stocks and the mutations they carry through the Maize Genetics and Genomics Database (MaizeGDB).

                  Data from: Secretome data from Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger cultivated in submerged and sequential fermentation methods

                    The cultivation procedure and the fungal strain applied for enzyme production may influence levels and profile of the proteins produced. The proteomic analysis data presented here provide critical information to compare proteins secreted by Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger when cultivated through submerged and sequential fermentation processes, using steam-explosion sugarcane bagasse as inducer for enzyme production.
