Ag Data Commons migration begins October 18, 2023

The Ag Data Commons is migrating to a new platform – an institutional portal on Figshare. Starting October 18 the current system will be available for search and download only. Submissions will resume after the launch of our portal on Figshare in November. Stay tuned for details!

CottonGen Sequence Retrieval

    Sequence Retrieval allows users to download nucleotide and protein sequences including chromosomes, scaffolds, genes, mRNAs, transcript coding sequences, protein, reftrans contigs and unigene contigs. For the sequences aligned to larger sequences, such as genes, mRNAs and transcript coding sequences, a numeric value specifying the number of upstream bases and downstream bases can be entered.

    CottonGen Map Viewer

      MapViewer is a graphical tool for viewing and comparing *Gossypium* spp. genetic maps. It includes dynamically scrollable maps, correspondence matrices, dot plots, links to details about map features, and exporting functionality. It was developed by the MainLab at Washington State University and is available for download for use in other Tripal databases.

      CottonGen JBrowse

        CottonGen has an instance of the JBrowse genome browser for viewing genome data. A list of the Whole Genomes and Chloroplast Genomes is available together with a JBrowse tutorial for more details about how to navigate and use JBrowse.

        CottonGen BLAST

          CottonGen offers BLAST with genome, transcriptome, peptide and marker sequence databases from *Gossypium* species. This can be done using nucleotide sequences or peptide sequences. BLAST functionality is similar to that on NCBI.

          CottonGen CottonCyc Pathways Database

            The CottonGen CottonCyc Pathways Database supports searching and browsing the CottonCyc databases: * Cyc pathways for JGI v2.0 *G. raimondii* D5 genome assembly * Cyc pathways for CGP-BGI v1.0 *G. hirsutum* AD1 genome assembly

            CottonGen Breeding Information Management System (BIMS)

              BIMS, the Breeding Information Management System, is a secure and comprehensive online breeding management system developed for the generic Tripal Database Platform which allows breeders to store, manage, archive and analyze their private breeding program. Breeders can load data in templates provided as well as output from the Field Book App, an android app for collecting phenotype data. In addition to the private breeders BIMS, users without accounts can also view the publicly available breeding data. The fully developed version will allow users to: * Fully integrate their data with publicly available genomic, genetic and breeding data in the community database. * Utilize their integrated pedigree, phenotype and genotype data in performing genomic analysis and making breeding decisions. * Use open-source new genomics tool and breeding decision tools with seamless access to HPC.

              CottonGen: Cotton Database Resources

                CottonGen (https://www.cottongen.org) is a curated and integrated web-based relational database providing access to publicly available genomic, genetic and breeding data to enable basic, translational and applied research in cotton. Built using the open-source Tripal database infrastructure, CottonGen supersedes CottonDB and the Cotton Marker Database, which includes sequences, genetic and physical maps, genotypic and phenotypic markers and polymorphisms, quantitative trait loci (QTLs), pathogens, germplasm collections and trait evaluations, pedigrees, and relevant bibliographic citations, with enhanced tools for easier data sharing, mining, visualization, and data retrieval of cotton research data.
