Breeding and Genomics: storing data on the genomes of 200,000 cows

Published on

The department of Breeding and Genomics of Wageningen University & Research analyses and stores data on the genomes and phenotypes of animals to improve animal breeding.

The group works with genome data of agricultural animals but also with the data of zoo animals and dogs. The majority of data used by the group comes from databases. In the new blogpost, the Breeding and Genomics group shows how well-organised storage on the W-drive and structured (meta-)data archiving keeps data safe and findable for reuse.
