Research Project: SEQUENCING, ANNOTATION, AND DATABASE MANAGEMENT OF THE GENOME OF THEOBROMA CACAO

Location: Subtropical Horticulture Research

Project Number: 6038-21000-023-01
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Aug 06, 2008
End Date: Aug 06, 2013

Objective:
The primary goal of this project is to use the most advanced techniques available to sequence, assemble, annotate, and curate the cacao genome.

Approach:
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.
