Bioinformatics and database support for the CORE project is being tasked to house and analyze data for the North American effort to improve information related to oat germplasm based on sequencing, molecular marker information, and analysis of trait diversity.
A germinal set of molecular marker information created for the CORE collection has been created using modern sequencing technologies and has been used to build genetic maps in several oat mapping populations. Annotations are being created to identify key traits in oat and to test molecular markers to track down and validate candidate trait identities. Resources for these analyses are being placed in relational databases by GGD personnel which is made available to CORE project members and collaborators.
