    Root Zone Water Quality Model 2 (RZWQM2) is a whole-system model for studying crop production and environmental quality under current and changing climate conditions. It emphasizes the effects of agricultural management practices on physical, chemical and biological processes. RZWQM2 is a one-dimensional model with a pseudo 2-dimensional drainage flow. Crop simulation options include the generic plant growth model, DSSAT-CSM 4.0 and HERMES SUCROS models. It also can simulate surface energy balance with components from the SHAW model and water erosion from the GLEAMS model. An automated parameter estimation algorithm (PEST) was added to RZWQM2 for objective model calibration and uncertainty analysis.

    Data from: Cultivar resistance to common scab disease of potato is dependent on the pathogen species

      All data from the paper "Cultivar resistance to common scab disease of potato is dependent on the pathogen species." Three separate datasets are included: 1.A csv file with the disease severity of three common scab pathogens across 55 different potato cultivars in a greenhouse pot assay (Figures 2-5 in the associated paper). The included R script was used with this data to perform the ANOVA for the data from the greenhouse pot assay (Table 2 in the associated paper). This script can be used in R for any similar dataset to calculate the significance and percent of total variation for any number of user-defined fixed effects. 2. A zipped file with all of the qPCR data for the expression of the txtAB genes (Figure 6 in the associated paper). 3. An Excel file with the HPLC data for making the thaxtomin detection standard curve and quantifying the amount of thaxtomin in the test sample.

      Data from: Genetic Diversity and Population Structure of the USDA Sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas) Germplasm Collections Using GBSpoly

        Population structure and genetic diversity of 417 USDA sweetpotato (*Ipomoea batatas*) accessions originating from 8 broad geographical regions (Africa, Australia, Caribbean, Central America, Far East, North America, Pacific Islands, and South America) were determined using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) identified with a genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) protocol, GBSpoly, optimized for highly heterozygous and polyploid species.

        BAR- The Bio-Analytic Resource for Plant Biology

          BAR is a collection of web-based, user-friendly tools for exploring, visualizing, and analyzing large datasets from plants. Supported are expression data, Next-Gen sequence data, protein-protein interactions, polymorphisms / conservation, and protein 3-D structures.

          Plant Variety Protection Office - Scanned Certificates

            This dataset provides the scans of issued certificates for a variety of plants. If you know the certificate number or applicant name simply enter the information in the search box. For certificates issued between 1970 and 1999, add two zeroes in front of the 7-digit number. Alternatively, you can search by selecting a crop from the list.
