SGN Workshop - Solanaceae Genomes, Tools, and the Breeder’s Toolbox

SGN is a repository for whole genome sequences, large scale genotype, genetic map, expression, and phenotype data. It provides access to data using in-house and externally developed and open source annotation, analysis and visualization tools. Data is highly integrated and cross-referenced to allow discovery of knowledge. Crops with rich datasets in our databases include tomato, pepper, tobacco, coffee, and petunia. Biologists and breeders interested in utilizing the data and tools available at solgenomics.net will benefit from attending the workshop. Bioinformaticians interested in exchanging experiences, ideas and co-developing tools are also welcome.
