Long Term Ecological Research (LTER), Jornada Basin Data Catalog

    This dataset links to the Jornada data homepage, which links to 153 individual datasets. Those datasets can then be searched based on Title, Keyword, or Investigator. The Jornada Basin Long Term Ecological Research Program (JRN LTER) has been investigating desertification processes since 1982.

    Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN)

      The Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN) is an online portal for information about agricultural genetic resources that are managed by the Agricultural Research Service of USDA, along with U.S. partnering organizations.

      Data from: United States wildlife and wildlife product imports from 2000–2014

        Data are presented on 15 years of the importation of wildlife and their derived products into the United States (2000–2014), originally collected by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. These data include >2 million wildlife or wildlife product shipments, representing >60 biological classes and >3.2 billion live organisms. The data were curated and cleaned, and taxonomic information added to improve usability.

        Data from: Tripal EUtils - A Tripal module to increase exchange and reuse of genome assembly metadata

          A core component of NCBI’s BioSample metadata are the BioSample “packages” ([https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/biosample/docs/packages/](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/biosample/docs/packages/)). Data submitters can choose a package, which contain a variety of attribute sets, such as plant- or insect-specific attributes, attribute values as recommended by the MIxS standard, etc. Here, we provide suggested ontology term mappings for attributes from the Invertebrate 1.0 and Plant 1.0 packages. This dataset corresponds to Table 4 in the corresponding publication in the journal Database.

          Oncopeltus fasciatus hybrid genome assembly 1.0

            The milkweed bug, *Oncopeltus fasciatus*, was sequenced as part of the i5k pilot project from Baylor College of Medicine (Illumina data). To augment those resources, we present here a hybrid genome assembly with low coverage PacBio data, assembled with PBJelly: the *Oncopeltus fasciatus* Hybrid Genome Assembly v1.0.

            The GRIN-Global Project

              GRIN-Global is an ongoing international collaborative project to develop shared and open-source applications that help manage plant germplasm collections.

              National Invertebrate Genetic Resources

                Insects impact American agriculture both as destructive and beneficial organisms. Insect pests, parasites, predators, products, and pollinators are all economically important. It is critically important to distinguish between different species, races, stocks, strains, biotypes, and other genetic entities and to document their different interactions with agriculture and the environment. The goals of the National Invertebrate Genetic Resources Program include: 1. Preservation of reference specimens 2. Maintenance of genetically important germplasm 3. Documentation of specific insect stocks 4. Management of databases 5. Distribution of material to researchers and breeders.

                ARS Collection of Entomopathogenic Fungal Cultures (ARSEF)

                  The Agricultural Research Service Collection of Entomopathogenic Fungal Cultures is the world's largest, most kaleidoscopic, and most comprehensive collection of living cultures of fungi that are pathogenic to or associated with insects, spiders, mites, ticks, and other invertebrates. Some isolates in the collection are not themselves invertebrate pathogens but are critically important for the improvements of taxonomies and systematics for the many diverse groups of fungi represented here. As of July 2016, ARSEF maintains more than 13000 isolates of more than 700 taxa of fungi isolated from 1300 hosts collected at more than 2400 locations on every continent.
