I am not familiar with plant genomics. Recently, I heard from a chat that
there is usually a delay (is this true?) for the Arabidopsis sequence data
to be submitted to GenBank. Obviously, you can get a competitive advantage
to exploit this 'time-gap'. Some faculty asked us to collect all these
unfinished data daily. This way, the researcher can get three to six months
ahead of others.
Where are the unfinished Arabidopsis sequence data? How often are they
released (hourly? daily? monthly?)???? Does it make sense to collect and
compile these data from the TIGR, WashU, and several other sites daily?
We are brain-storming for this project, but have not started yet. Pros or
cons? Anybody know a group had already done this?
