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.


        PeanutBase ([peanutbase.org](https://peanutbase.org)) is the primary genetics and genomics database for cultivated peanut and its wild relatives. It houses information about genome sequences, genes and predicted functions, genetic maps, markers, links to germplasm resources, and maps of peanut germplasm origins.

        Diaphorina citri Official Gene Set v1.0

          This gene set (OGS v1.0) combines both automatically predicted and manually curated gene models. This community effort produced 530 manually curated gene models across developmental, physiological, RNAi regulatory, and immunity-related pathways. As previously shown in the pea aphid, RNAi machinery genes putatively involved in the microRNA pathway have been specifically duplicated. A comprehensive transcriptome enabled us to identify a number of gene families that are either missing or misassembled in the draft genome.

          Homalodisca vitripennis genome annotations v0.5.3

            The *Homalodisca vitripennis* genome was recently sequenced and annotated as part of the i5k pilot project by the Baylor College of Medicine. This dataset presents the *Homalodisca vitripennis* 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.

            Cimex lectularius Genome Annotations v0.5.3

              The Baylor College of Medicine recently sequenced and annotated the Cimex lectularius genome as part of the i5k pilot project. The C. lectularius research community has manually reviewed and curated the computational gene predictions and generated an official gene set, OGSv1.2. This dataset presents the Cimex lectularius gene set BCM_v_0.5.3, which was generated computationally. RNA-Seq data was used with additional protein homology data for a MAKER automated annotation of the Cimex lectularius genome assembly 1.0.
