accessing data in genebanks

Leave a comment

DivSeek aims to unlock the potential of crop diversity stored in genebanks around the globe and make it available to all so that it can be utilized to enhance the productivity, sustainability and resilience of crops and agricultural systems. This will help to bridge the gap between the information requirements of genebank curators, plant breeders and more targeted upstream biological researchers, to support applied germplasm curation, forward-looking breeding programs and strategic research.

The DivSeek initiative will work with existing, emerging and future initiatives to characterize crop diversity and develop a unified, coordinated and cohesive information management platform to provide easy access to genotypic and phenotypic data associated with genebank germplasm.
