SOL Genomics Network (SGN) Survey

The SOL Genomics Network (SGN; http://sgn.cornell.edu) is a comparative resource for the plants of the Solanaceae family, which includes important crop and model plants such as potato (Solanum tuberosum), eggplant (Solanum melongena), pepper (Capsicum annuum), and tomato (Solanum lycopersicum). We are developing a sustainability plan to ensure the long-term availability of this important resource. Your response to this survey will help us:
1) document the value and importance of SGN to your work;
2) guide our future development effort and
3) evaluate the best mechanism to fund ongoing SGN work including software maintenance and improvements to data and tools.

Thank you for your valuable feedback.
