Location: Sustainable Perennial Crops Laboratory
Project Number: 8042-21220-252-19-A
Project Type: Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 11, 2009
End Date: Aug 16, 2014
The objective of this agreement is to support research to provide high throughput sequencing services for phytopathogenic fungi, plant insect pests and the associated host plants for use in genomic and transcriptome analysis. ARS desires the Cooperator to provide goods and services necessary to develop appropriate RNA, DNA and cDNA libraries from ARS provided material for sequencing. The cooperator will provide sequencing and data processing to ARS in the form of usable sequence data and all raw data.
The Cooperator under ARS direction will produce appropriate sequencing libraries from infected and noninfected control materials and conduct high throughput sequencing. ARS will provide Cooperator with isolated DNA and RNA. The cooperator will conduct initial alignment and comparison analysis and will send the data to ARS or to a third party designated by ARS.
