Registration now closed!

We are pleased to announce the 2nd transPLANT user training workshop to be held in Poznań, Poland, 27-28 June 2013. The workshop focuses on plant genomics resources with special reference to Triticeae and topics related to standardisation and annotation of plant phenotypic data. We target experimental biologists and plant breeders; no prior informatics training is assumed.

Registration now closed!

A Meeting on "Genomes to Germplasm" will be held in INRA, Versailles, France from 28th February - 2nd March 2013.

Bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) is a globally important crop, accounting for 20 per cent of the calories consumed by humans. Major efforts are underway worldwide to increase wheat production by extending genetic diversity and analysing key traits, and genomic resources can accelerate progress.

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) are a standard approach for studying the genetics of natural variation. A major concern in GWAS is the need to account for the complicated dependence structure of the data, both between loci as well as between individuals.

transPLANT

is a European-Union funded e-infrstructure to support computational analysis of genomic data from crop and model plants. The project funds coordination and research activities; and provides free access to tools, training and data standards.

Training

transPLANT is running a series of training courses across Europe. The next one will be held at EMBL-EBI, Hinton, UK, 1st-3rd July, 2015. When registration is opened, details will be posted here.

  • You can access material from the previous transPLANT training courses here.
  • We are developing a series of videos, guiding users through some of the most interesting and complex data sets available for plants. View the first video, focused on resources for the barley genome, here.

Standards

The development and adoption of data standards is vital to the interoperability of data. transPLANT is currently pursuing the development of standards for plant phenotyping data, in collaboration with other interested groups. Visit our Phenotype standardisation portal to see the latest proposals and get involved.
