COTTONGEN DATABASE DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Doreen Main, Washington State University
CottonGen is a comprehensive database that will benefit all cotton researchers and ultimately growers across the 17 states where cotton is grown. Highlighted below is the progress to date in the initial start-up and development of CottonGen.
CottonGen v0.9 released and presented at ICGI 2012.
New data added to GBrowse:
The Chinese BGI D-genome sequence assembly v1.0 and annotations
The Chinese BGI D-genome sequence annotations
CottonGen unigene v1.0 aligned to the BGI D-genome
PlantGDB unigenes aligned to the BGI D-genome
J. Udall 2012 Unigene contigs aligned to the BGI D-genome
NCBI cotton dbest sequences aligned to the BGI D-genome
Cacao theobroma v0.9 proteins aligned to the BGI D-genome
Arabidopsis thaliana TAIR10 proteins aligned to the BGI D-genome
CottonGen markers aligned to the BGI D-genome
New data added to both NCBI and Batch BLAST servers:
The Chinese BGI D-genome 13 chromosomes and 4434 scaffolds sequences
The Chinese BGI D-genome 40976 CDS sequences
The Chinese BGI D-genome 40976 protein sequences
GenBank cotton dbSNP 39862 sequences
CottonGen 3451 RFLP marker sequences
CottonGen 1278 SNP marker sequences
CottonGen 12330 SSR marker sequences
New data added to CMap:
TM-1 x Hai-7124, BC1 (2012)
CIRAD High Density Consensus (2012)
New or corrected data have been made ready in templates for loading to chado:
736 CICR EST-SSR markers with marker source data
3414 loci and 3047 markers of TM-1 x Hai-7124, BC1 (2012)
8253 loci and 6617 markers of CIRAD High Density Consensus (2012)
27633 Sample_ID information from Du_2005 dataset added into genotype sheet
16 new and 362 corrections for stock_id_in_collection sheet
Corrections of species for map sheet
22 image files of 2 accessions from USDA-ARS germplasm characterization Project
52 trait scores of 2 accessions from USDA-ARS germplasm characterization Project
