Learn to explore and mine both phenotypic and genotypic data from the tomato core collection and experimental tomato populations screened within EU-SOL and how to use these data to link to the tomato genome (https://www.eu-sol.wur.nl).
BreeDB is the primary database resource for the EU-SOL genotyping and phenotyping data and is hosted at https://www.eu-sol.wur.nl. This database hosts data-sets collected within EU-SOL. This site is roughly divided into two sections. Data obtained from the tomato core collection and data obtained on experimental populations. A diverse set of tools is available to mine the diverse sets of data. In the tutorial we will focus on the question of how to mine this data, and in special, it will focus on the tools that allows exploration the genetic diversity within the tomato core collection.
The tutorial will include explanations on how to explore the phenotypic data that was obtained by screening of the group of Dani Zamir and by the companies within EU-SOL, and how to explore the genotypic data that was obtained by Keygene NV. We will show the tools that will allow the study of the genetic structure of the core collection and the tools that allows integration of genotype and phenotypic information on the tomato core collection. Finally, we will show the tool that allows users to take the step from the genetic, or QTL interval with a positive association to the corresponding region on the tomato genome sequence. Finally, we will show how to obtain the seeds of the germplasm that is of interest for your research / breeding goals.
