Modern cereal breeding and crop improvement rely on genotypic and phenotypic data to identify the important genetics that drive crop performance such as high yield, salinity, drought or heat tolerance.
The OzBarley genotype-to-phenotype (G2P) data asset will make this data available for the discovery of important genes, reducing the time and cost of breeding new barley varieties.
The OzBarley project is developing a publicly available Genotype-to-Phenotype (G2P) data asset meeting FAIR principles that is specifically designed by, and for, Australian researchers and breeders focusing on barley as an economically important model crop.
The project involves the following elements:
Researchers and research organisations, plant breeders, Australian grains industry, data managers and analysts will benefit from the project’s core features:
Our partners are:
Our collaborating organisations are:
OzBarley will create a G2P data asset for the assessment of crop genomes, and the corresponding variability in trait expression with relation to the environment. This will allow researchers, breeders, bioinformaticians and machine learning experts to jointly work towards extracting maximum value from the data to support crop improvement.
Public/private collaboration will ensure open and integrated data access to academic and industry users, and a foundation for researchers to grow the data asset in the future.
