Research Project: Improving Barley and Wheat Germplasm for Changing Environments

Location: Genomics and Gene Discovery

Project Number: 5325-21000-021-03
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Feb 01, 2011
End Date: Jan 31, 2015

Objective:
A genetic database for called The Triticeae Toolbox (T3) will be created, developed, populated with all data from the USDA NIFA Triticeae CAP project, and served on the Internet for free public access. T3 will hold the experimental results from 60,000 wheat and barley lines which will be phenotyped for 100 traits and genotyped for an average of 10,000 mapped SNP markers. It will provide flexible queries for extracting desired datasets for analysis as well as integrated analytical tools.

Approach:
Two separate databases will be implemented, T3 Wheat and T3 Barley. A server machine will be purchased, designed to optimize searching large databases, computing statistical functions on large datasets, and serving the results via Internet. Five years of system administration support will be provided for the machine including installation of required software, all security administration, data and software backup maintenance, and upgrades of hardware, software and operating system. Physical support will be provided in a server room with refrigeration, high-speed network switching and failover electric supplies.
