Watch a recoring of the webinar:
For: Crop breeders, data experts
The topic: GOBii has built a genomics data management system that can rapidly load, manage and extract all scales of data and many data types.
The agenda: Join us as we demonstrate GOBii data preparation tools, BrAPI enabled data import and Flapjack analyses, including batch analysis and decision support.

The GOBii project’s mission is to build genomics data management systems and tools that enable breeders to routinely implement marker-assisted and genomic selection as part of routine breeding programs. We have developed a database that can rapidly load, manage and extract all scales of data and many data types. We have built data QC tools for data curator in collaboration with Diversity Arrays Technologies, marker assisted selection and pedigree verification tools in Flapjack with the James Hutton Institute, and genomic selection tools in Galaxy.
In the last year we have significantly improved integration between GOBii genomics data manger (GDM) and our downstream tools by implementing BrAPI calls (BrAPIs: http://docs.brapi.apiary.io), so that data can now be pulled directly into breeding tools from the GOBii Genomics Data Manager (GDM). Since multiple populations are now generally combined to reduce genotyping costs, we have developed tools to split data into individual population datasets for batch analysis and breeding decision support in Flapjack. We will demonstrate data preparation tools, BrAPI enabled data import, and Flapjack analyses, including batch analysis and decision support.
GOBii is now being integrated into the CGIAR Excellence in Breeding Program’s Enterprise Breeding System (EBS), which will deliver a fully integrated, modular and scalable data management system to efficiently deliver genetic gains in CGIAR crops.
