Research Project: Development of MaizeMine, a Flexible Data Warehouse and Analysis System for Retrieval of Customized Datasets from the MaizeGDB Database

Location: Corn Insects and Crop Genetics Research

Project Number: 5030-21000-068-03-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: May 1, 2016
End Date: May 31, 2020

Objective:
Install and deploy an open source biological sciences specific data analysis and warehouse software package that will allow MaizeGDB users to query the maize database directly to retrieve large scale, customized datasets in a variety of formats.

Approach:
The open source software application will be developed by Cooperator and delivered to MaizeGDB for deployment and long-term use by MaizeGDB stakeholders. Anticipated benefits include providing the maize genetics and breeding communities with a powerful set of tools for integrating large-scale datasets to both identify and understand either genes or gene networks that underpin basic biological processes that contribute to crop productivity.
