Retrieve Brassica Phenotypes

The app “Retrieve-Brassica-Phenotypes” imports standardised Brassica trait data from the Brassica Information Portal (BIP) into CyVerse, so that the user can subsequently integrate this data into genotype-phenotype association analysis worflows.

Inputs are the trial name as it is registered in the BIP, as well as the BIP-API-key. You need to have a BIP account to retrieve your API-key. It is free to sign up and you can use your ORCiD for it. Please click renew your BIP-API-key in the BIP website after you downloaded data.

The main output file will be a .csv-file with accession identifiers, SRA-identifiers and the trait measurements of the trial. Sequence IDs get passed on into a Seq_names.txt file for further queries. It also creates a Sequence_IDs_log.txt, where the user can see whether some accessions did not have any or multiple Sequence IDs.

For more information on the app, please see the documentation.
