The objective of this proposal is to optimally utilize the DNA sequencing and data analysis resources at USDA ARS Beltsville Agricultural Research Center (BARC) and Mississippi State University (MSU) through collaboration and utilization of complementary resources.
MSU researchers will provide DNA templates and reagents as required to generate DNA sequence data and perform down-stream computational analysis. MSU will provide computational resources to annotate and display genomic data represented in the Bovine Genome Atlas. USDA ARS BARC will provide DNA sequencing services at cost. All of these activities will be considered true collaborations and thus, by definition, each party will be considered to have provided a true intellectual contribution consistent with authorship.
