By leveraging the database resources available at Univ. Maryland, ARS research labs (including the Bee Research Lab) and at the National Agricultural Library, this agreement is to develop a relational database for collecting and displaying insect genomic information. The project will improve a web-based ‘workspace’ where ARS and University scientists in the U.S. and abroad can access insect genomic data and add insights into genetic traits that affect insect health. The database will be based on database types which are standard for both major genomic centers (including the National Institutes of Health) and for library resources at the NAL.
