Project Number: 6066-22000-063-09-S
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Jun 1, 2012
End Date: Dec 31, 2014
Assemble and annotate the genome sequence of the tarnished plant bug and develop a publicly accessible database.
Genome assemblies will be conducted using different programs and algorithms, including the programs SOAPdevovo and Abyss, using a number of different parameter settings to achieve the best assembly. The analyses require computers with very large amounts of memory. Structural gene annotations will be calculated using the Maker pipeline. Data will be made available for download and in a database format, as well as in tools such as BLAST.
