Data and Information Systems
Collections of crop diversity need to be used actively in order to justify the cost of their upkeep. In order for crop collections to be used, data about the material held in genebanks needs to be of as high quality, and as easily accessible, as the seeds themselves. Therefore, the Crop Trust is working to build information systems to help manage and search crop collections globally.
Genesys is an online platform where you can find information about plant genetic resources for food and agriculture conserved in genebanks worldwide.
GRIN-Global is a database application that enables genebanks to store and manage information associated with plant genetic resources and deliver that information globally
