FAIR together – Launching the Collaboration between the NFDI DataPLANT and the HMC Hub Information at IBG-4 & IAS-9

The mission of the Helmholtz Metadata Collaboration (HMC) platform and the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) is to improve the findability (Findable), accessibility (Accessible), machine readability (Interoperable), and reusability (Re-usable) of research data across domains, with respect to the FAIR Principles. The HMC Hubs Information and the NFDI Consortium DataPLANT (NFDI4Plants) now start a direct collaboration at the Jülich Research Center!


The European Project BreedingValue Officially Launched

BreedingValue aims on breeding of new resilient and value-adding berries. As one of 20 partners from eight different countries IBG-4 is researching in the EU-funded BreedingValue project to improve strawberry, blueberry and raspberry varieties. On January 20th and 21st, the project partners met for a virtual kick-off meeting to get the project started officially.


PlaBi-PD False Flax

Camelina sativa genome data added to the plaBi-PD database

2021 Mar 08: Genome data of the traditional oilseed False flax were added to the plaBi database. Beside Camelina sativa, the plaBi database focuses on seven other crop plants and the reference model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. The online available web interface shows the protein sequence (including conserved domains), the cDNA and the genomic sequence (including predicted exon/intron positions) for all protein encoding genes. In addition, protein sequences are grouped into protein families and functionally annotated by the Mapman4 framework.
