Location: Corn Insects and Crop Genetics Research2013 Annual Report
1a. Objectives (from AD-416):
Develop database and website for project data.
1b. Approach (from AD-416):
ADODR and other project collaborators will provide Dr. Grant with project data pertaining to field analyses, genome sequences, and genome-wide association mapping data. Dr. Grant will receive the data, develop and format a relational database to house the data, and will develop tools for data analyses and manipulation. A web site to present this database to the scientific community will be developed and maintained for the duration of the grant.
3. Progress Report:
We developed an initial web site for the project which currently provides access to all of the data collection and analysis methods used by the stress trials group. We participated in the weekly or monthly teleconferences held by the whole project team, the stress trials group and the molecular genetics group as well as the teleconferences held by the Navy-funded sister project. A two day workshop with the members of the molecular genetics team was held in May 2013.
