Abstract : The International Rice Informatics Consortium (IRIC), established in 2014, is coordinated by the International Rice Research Institute, and currently has 17 private & public sector member institutions. IRIC aims to 1-organize genotype and available phenotype and passport data for rice germplasm into a linked, consistent and reliable source of information for the global research community, 2-support the development of a user-friendly platform to browse, search and analyze rice data through a single Web portal, and 3-coordinate information sharing and provide a communication platform for public awareness and capacity building. To fulfill objectives 1-2, IRIC leads the development of the SNP-Seek database, a web resource that allows rapid searching of genotypes, varieties, and analyses results from the 3,000 Rice Genomes, High-Density Rice Array and various sequencing/ genotyping projects, and public rice genome information. IRIC also contributes to international initiatives for data standards (Crop Ontology, CGIAR Big Data & Genebank Platforms), data/database interoperability (Breeding API, Rice Data Interoperability Working Group), and reproducible analyses (Rice Galaxy, Excellence in Breeding). IRIC conducts outreach, training and collaboration with the rice research community through annual workshops at Plant Animal Genome conference and the International Symposium on Rice Functional Genomics, the IRIC website, and social media through Facebook and LinkedIn. In this talk the various bioinformatics resources of IRIC will be presented in greater detail.
