The cacao sequencing project will be organized and coordinated from the Miami lab using various vendors and collaborating partners. The project has two sub-objectives that will be accomplished over the next five years. First, the entire genome sequence of Matina 1-6 will be generated using a combination of various sequencing strategies. The annotated genome sequence will be deposited in a publicly available database. Second, an integrated web-based relational database will be developed, and curated.
