Apple as a Model for Genomic Information Exchange

This study aims to integrate the high quality apple reference genome and its associated catalogue of genetic diversity, representing the most widely cultivated apple varieties around the world. Apple will be used as a case study for managing the growing number of ‘multi-genome’ fruit projects, testing and where necessary, improving tools to streamline data import and exchange between ELIXIR supported resources, specifically BioSamples, ENA, EVA, ORCAE and Ensembl Plants.

The study is run by ELIXIR Italy (Alessandro Cestaro), ELIXIR Belgium (Lieven Sterck) and EMBL-EBI (Paul Kersey).
