COMPETITION/ FUNDING OPPORTUNITY Genome Alberta - Enabling Bioinformatics Solutions (EBS)
PROJECT START DATE October 1, 2020
PROJECT END DATE June 30, 2022

The recent advent of sequencing technologies has enabled the generation of a large amount of bee microbiome data from different sources. There is an urgent need for those bee microbiome datasets to be made more accessible so that information can be applied for scientific discoveries and can be translated for stakeholder use. The goal of this project is to advance the development of the BeeBiome Data Portal, which was initiated by the international Bee Microbiome consortium ( The portal will maximize the value of the complex and diverse bee microbiome datasets by enabling analysis and dissemination of information on the microorganisms and viruses associated with bees.
