3K RG data

       The most comprehensive resource for re-sequenced rice genomes to-date is the 3,000 Rice Genomes project, a collaborative effort from BGI-Shenzhen, the Chinese Academy for Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), and IRRI.  The published datanote on the 3K RG dataset (The 3,000 rice genomes project) is available in GigaScience Journal. 

3K RG at AWS:   The Amazon Public Data program is hosting the 3K RG dataset (alignment to 5 published rice genomes, raw SNP and small indel calls from these alignments) , providing cloud-based infrastructure to make the dataset accessible and useable by  geneticists and breeders.

3K RG at DOST-ASTI:   In collaboration with the Philippines’ Department of Science and Technology Advanced Science and Technology Institute , the 3K RG analyzed data could be downloaded  their data storage service — COARE Data Catalog. The COARE Data Catalog is a web-based research repository that hosts a number of research datasets. Also, it offers a web interface to search and access research datasets. The 3kRG dataset is hosted in the COARE Data Catalog. To access the dataset, visit and register for an account.  

High Density Rice Array (HDRA) data

        Another resource with genotype information for 700,000 SNPs from a diverse set of rice accessions (among other datasets) is the NSF (McCouch et al, 2016) with > 1,600 genotyped accessions .  The list of the accessions for this project is available here.
