Workshop Description

The NSF Plant Genome Research Program have sponsored a 2 day workshop  held in Salt Lake City on April 18-19th, 2017. The workshop brought together 42 scientists associated with more than 20 agricultural databases and supporting respurces to achieve  two main goals: (1) Generate a white paper to  define key components of genomic, genetic, and breeding (GGB) databases in agriculture; recommend best practices for these components; and identify immediate, future and unmet needs across databases; and (2)  Plan a draft of a NSF Research Coordination Network grant to help us continue to coordinate and collaborate across agricultural GGB databases.
