Pachypsylla venusta genome assembly v1.0

    The Baylor College of Medicine has sequenced and annotated the Pachypsylla venusta genome as part of the i5k pilot project. This dataset presents the Pachypsylla venusta genome v1.0. This assembly version is the pre-release version, prior to filtering and quality control by the National Center for Biotechnology Information's GenBank resource.

    GenSAS v5.1: A Web-Based Platform for Structural and Functional Annotation and Curation of Genomes

      The Genome Sequence Annotation Server (GenSAS) is an online platform that provides a pipeline for whole genome structural and functional annotation. Users can upload genome sequences and select from a variety of tools for repeat masking, prediction of gene models and other structural features as well as functional annotation tools. GenSAS integrates with JBrowse and Apollo to provide visualization and editing.

      Genome Database for Vaccinium

        The Genome Database for Vaccinium (GDV) is a curated and integrated web-based relational database. The GDV is being developed to house and integrate genomic, genetic and breeding data for blueberry, cranberry and other Vaccinium species. The GDV will include the blueberry genome being sequenced by North Carolina State University, and annotated transcripts, traits, maps and markers being generated by Vaccinium researchers.

        Citrus Genome Database

          The Citrus Genome Database, known as CGD, is a USDA and NSF funded resource to enable basic, translational and applied research in citrus. It houses genomics, genetics and breeding data for citrus species and organisms associated with HLB. It is built by the Mainlab at Washingotn State University using the open-source, generic database platform Tripal.

          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.

            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.

              Switchgrass ESTs and SNPs

                As part of our project, “Developing Association Mapping in Polyploid Perennial Biofuel Grasses” (DOE-USDA Plant Feedstock Genomics for Bioenergy Program grant DE-A102-07ER64454)*, two SNP discovery initiatives were carried out. The earlier one (2009) was an approach based on EST sequences. The latest initiative (2011-12) adopted a more powerful approach, based on GBS (Genotyping by Sequencing). We believe that the SNP markers identified in these studies will greatly enhance breeding efforts that target the improvement of key biofuel traits and the development of new switchgrass cultivars.
