Research Project: Development of Next Generation Sequences to Address Genetic Diversity and Disease Interactions of Perennial Tropical Crops

Location: Sustainable Perennial Crops Laboratory

Project Number: 8042-21000-281-03-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 12, 2014
End Date: Jun 12, 2019

The objective of this agreement is to support research through collaborations that provide high throughput next generation sequencing and genotyping by sequencing services for tropical and semitropical plants, phytopathogenic fungi and bacteria, plant insect pests, and their associated host plants.

The Cooperator will produce appropriate sequencing and libraries for genotyping by sequencing or from infected and noninfected control material and conduct high throughput sequencing. ARS will provide the Cooperator with isolated DNA and or RNA. Cooperator will conduct initial alignment and comparison analysis and will send the data to ARS or to a third party designated by ARS.
