NRSP8: Building Applied Genomic Capacity for Animal Industries

Aims of the new NRSP8

  • Specific Aim 1: Extending genomics capacity to a broader range of Animal Science stakeholders.
  • Approach: survey stakeholders on data capacity needs; design workflows to simplify data sharing; develop resources (e.g., protocols.io) for genomic workflows; support community use of micropublications that ensure datasets are publicly available and citable; generate community benchmarks for data analysis and re-use.
  • Specific Aim 2: Supporting capacity to integrate genomic and biological data.
  • Approach: workshops to identify stakeholder data collection and data analysis gaps; roundtable discussions with molecular biologists/geneticists, informaticians and engineers to develop interdisciplinary teams; support for students and early career investigators, including attendance at bioinformatics and data science meetings.
  • Specific Aim 3: Education, training and outreach to develop a data-savvy workforce.
  • Approach: development and publication of stand-alone educational modules that can be added to existing animal science courses or used as stand-alone training; linking educational modules with micro-certificates that signal data competencies; development of a mailing list/bulletin board to publicize internship opportunities between stakeholders, students and academic advisors in animal science; bioinformatics training workshops at meetings and conferences.
