"Speaking of Oats..." in February: The GrainGenes database
The next “Speaking of Oats…” (SOO) webinar will be held on Thursday, February 18th, at 11:00 am Eastern time (Canada/USA). Taner Sen (USDA-ARS, USA) and Victoria Blake (Montana State University, USA) will talk to us about “GrainGenes: A Curated and Functional Global Web Resource for Small Grains".
GrainGenes (https://wheat.pw.usda.gov/GG3/) is “a digital platform that serves small grains research communities as a centralized repository for peer-reviewed and curated data, and as a facilitator for community activities. It has been hard-funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service to ensure long-term data sustainability through a functional and integrated web interface for wheat, barley, oat, and rye”. Tutorials are available here.
The video recording from January's SOO webinar will be available soon. Thank you to Jean-Luc Jannink, David Waring, and Clay Birkett for describing the T3/Oat database and its applications so well. Thank you also to Patricia Ouimet for hosting, and to all who participated!
