Research Project: AN INTEGRATED DATABASE AND BIOINFORMATICS RESOURCE FOR SMALL GRAINS Project Number: 5325-21000-014-00
Project Type: Appropriated

Start Date: May 14, 2008
End Date: May 13, 2013

Objective:
1) Integrate small grains genetic and genomic data within the GrainGenes database and link to relevant external databases; 2) Develop software and interfaces to enhance utility for researchers.

Approach:
1) Extend development and curation within the GrainGenes project to include a suite of integrated databases and web-based resources for wheat, barley, rye, triticale, and oats research and improvement. 2) Carry out projects involving direct and collaborative support to those aspects of small grains genomics/genetics/molecular biology relevant to crop improvement. 3) Target user needs through meetings, personal interactions, and electronic communication with the small grains research community. 4) Develop improved displays and tools needed for improvement of the GrainGenes database and its inter-connections to other bioinformatics projects. Previously 5325-21000-007-00D (7/03). Replacing 5325-21000-010-00D (04/08). BSL-1 (4/08).
