Domestic Animals Genome and Phenome Focus Group

This Focus Group supports genotype to phenotype analysis for farmed and companion animal species. Connecting researchers and data scientists across species and countries is needed to accelerate genotype to phenotype research in domestic animals, and develop a coordinated, open and standardised data life cycle.

We aim to develop the case for a future Community and make initial progress at promoting and aligning tools, databases, standards, and best practices for domestic animal genomics and phenomics research. 

Goals

  • Promote the Focus Group activities, seek membership, and scope future Community needs in different ELIXIR Nodes.
  • Coordinate discussions and explore potential for data/technology solutions for addressing key issues in welfare, behaviour, health, infectious diseases, metabolism and nutritional efficiency and preservation of genetic diversity and environment.
  • Develop data standards, coordination, workflows and visualisation for key developing areas of pangenomics, functional genomics, genome editing, phenotyping and biorepositories, which are needed to enhance data analyses.
  • Develop FAIR data management guidelines, standards and ontologies and promote best practices in data coordination and archiving.
  • Organise tools and data training and knowledge transfer events.
