WHEAt and barley Legacy for Breeding Improvement

D4.1: Database containing sequence variation in >500 wheat and >500 barley accessions

The deliverable D4.1: “Database containing sequence variation in >500 wheat and >500 barley accessions across exome capture design space”  is available.

A short description is presented below:
Objectives: The WP2 generated a massive amount of resequencing and genotyping data which is stored on the information systems located at HMGU and has to be integrated into an externally accessible data retrieval system.
Rationale: The variation data and associated meta information describing individual accessions were integrated into an indexed data structure to allow rapid access. Access to the data structures is enabled through a RESTful web application which allows querying the database and gives a tabular and graphical representation of the results.
