Response to #ShutDownSTEM In sympathy with global outrage triggered by the murder of George Floyd, NCGR joined the world scientific community on June 10 to step back from research activities and reflect upon our responsibility to strengthen our society through commitment to fighting racism and promoting diversity and inclusion in our work. We will continue to engage with the local community through a variety of outreach initiatives, and will expand our efforts to make STEM education, training and employment accessible to people regardless of gender, race, creed, color or orientation.
Response to COVID-19 The NCGR workforce has gone to work-from-home operations, but business is continuing as usual. Receipt of mail and parcels may be delayed but other forms of communication are being used normally.

PeanutBase

The peanut genome has been sequenced and analyzed as part of the International Peanut Genome Initiative, in order to accelerate breeding progress and get more productive, disease-resistant, stress-tolerant varieties to farmers. The two diploid progenitors have been sequenced and are available, along with predicted genes and descriptions. The genomes of the diploid progenitors have been used to help identify and assemble the similar chromosomes in cultivated peanut.

Cultivated peanut, Arachis hypogaea, is an allotetraploid (2n=4x=40) that contains two complete genomes, labeled the A and B genomes. A. duranensis (2n=2x=20) has likely contributed the A genome, and A. ipaensis has likely contributed the B genome.

This resource is being developed for U.S. and international peanut researchers and breeders, with support from The Peanut Foundation.
