    • Annual Meeting – Tropical Legumes Generation Challenge Programme 7-11 May 2012, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia Research Data Management (RDM) Cowpea database Sam Ofodile (sofodile@cgiar.org) www.iita.org
    • Introduction• IITA is lead centre for: - Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata – IVIS)• Data Management Activity Partners • UCR • ISRA • INERA • IITA and • IRAD www.iita.org
    • Germplasm Lists created (SETGEN)• TL1 Germplasm loaded and ongoing• Entries for drought phenotyping trials• Crosses made in 2010 under the PL1 project(HB2010)• 2010 heat tolerance studies•Shafter 02 and entries for Shafter 03 (Jeff Ehlers, UCR) www.iita.org
    • Trait Dictionary•Ranking of Cowpea Traits Completed (50 primary and86 secondary) show• Validation of Trait Lists completed. All duplicate traitsidentified and removed or renamed• Primary and Secondary Traits grouped according toclass e.g. Agronomic, biotic stress etc. (136 Traits)• All Traits loaded in the database, in Crop Ontologycuration tool and submitted for IB Fieldbook• A far cleaner and consistency cowpea database is nowmaintained www.iita.org
    • Trait Ontology Development and Curation Classification of Traits• Agronomic trait• Biotic Stress• Drought Tolerance• Grain Quality• Biomass• Traits loaded in the new excel template version3Show ontology www.iita.org
    • Dataset Catalogue Phenotypic• 24 datasets (excel)Genotypic• data for 600 genotypes• 9 phenotypic datasets loaded in ICIS database(show)• No genotypic dataset loaded yet www.iita.org
    • Work Plan• Reformatting the remaining datasets for loading• Loading of the remaining phenotypic and genotypicdatasets• Follow up on synchronisation of the fieldbook and theontology. Cross referencing and submission of new terms•Trait lists (methods and scales) to be translated to FrenchLanguage and CO identifier to be loaded• Synchronisation of database with ontology tool• Continuous update of cowpea database to make it veryfunctional, useful and reliable www.iita.org
    • Work Plan contd....• Use of GDMS• Use of IB fieldbook and tablet www.iita.org
    • Acknowledgements• Drs: J. Ehlers and O. Boukar, organizations: IITA, UCR, ISRA, INERA, and IRAD• Scientists who ranked the cowpea traits:Souleymane Abdou, Fatokun C.A., Muhammed Lawan Umar, IssaDrabo, Mohammed Ishaq, Mamadou Toure, Akin Akintunde andBoukar Ousmane• Thank you to:Israel Flores and Tunde Agbaje (data reformatting)Arllet Portugal and her team (ICIS support)Trushar Shan and his team in ICRISAT(ICIS training)Ndeye Ndack Diop(“follow up on datasets”)Elizabeth Arnaud (Ontology training) www.iita.org
