Functional Annotation of ANimal Genomes (FAANG) Project
A coordinated international action to accelerate Genome to Phenome
USDA NIFA Grant 2018-67015-27501 [$2,500,000] (2018-01-01~2021-12-31)
Objectives: (1) Maximize functional annotation in healthy adult porcine tissues relevant to phenotypes important for genetic improvement; (2) Create functional annotation of important tissues during fetal development and the association of allele-specific expression with allele-specific chromatin modification; (3) Identify the functional components of the immune system as a resource for improving resilience in pigs; (4) Integrate all public and project data to develop a higher-order regulatory understanding of the porcine genome, including a predicted chromatin state map.
