SCNBase is a website designed to be centralized knowledge base for SCN researchers and producers. It houses genomics, genetics, and population data along with tools to translate this information in to practical applications.
SCNBase is currently supported by the North Central Soybean Research Program , as part of a larger effort to enhance durability of SCN resistance for long-term, strategic SCN management. Information about this project can be had at here.

A data curator has expertise in bioinformatics or experience with GMOD tools and JBrowse. The fastest way to get your data loaded into SCNBase permanently is for a member of each group to familiarize themselves with standard file upload forms. For more complex training to ensure this community grows, contact Andrew Severin or Rick Masonbrink.

We do not maintain the raw data or raw data alignments (bam files). To support the longevity of this site, certain file sizes are beyond the storage limits. All raw data can be had in the SRA database of NCBI. We have indexed all currently available libraries available in NCBI SRA here.
Please contact one of the website data curators via email. There is likely a data curator from a group with whom you already collaborate.
Data can be downloaded using the Downloads link on the menu. All data and corresponding metadata currently available in SCNBase is available here. Use the filters on the page to narrow down the data you wish to download.
