Bioinformatic platform

Supervisor: Prof. Giorgio Valle – CRIBI-PADOVA

Goals

The bioinformatic platform is a pivotal resource in the whole project. We aim to develop a robust platform to achieve three major goals:

  1. To analyze raw data from genome sequencing to obtain information about genes and their functional and structural annotation. This goal will take advantage of the annotation platform developed for the Grape Genome Project, composed by a gene prediction module and a functional annotation workflow.
  2. To integrate data from modules 1, 2 and 3, about – respectively – structural genomics, functional genomics and genetic breeding. In practical terms we aim to develop and integrated data management system built both using existing tools (like the GMOD/Gbrowse) and, when necessary, developing novel tools.
  3. To develop and implement an advanced query system, to support the scientific activity of project modules 5, 6, 7 and 8. This platform will be used to store, manage and organize data produced by this project, and moreover will act as an advanced data retrieval system. Continue reading
