CIP PUBLISHES ONLINE DATABASE FOR POTATO AND SWEETPOTATO

Date : 18 December 2009

A new online database for potato and sweetpotato has just been published by the International Potato Center (CIP). The database, among the first of its kind to apply a scheme originally used for housing genomics data to a genebank collection, is searchable for more than 90 attributes related to the germplasm held in Center's extensive collections. It contains passport data, such as the origin and availability of germplasm, characterization data, molecular marker data (SSR), and the entire list of worldwide distributions of CIP held germplasm.

"It is the holy grail of the genebank and breeding information managers' community – having a data search facility for different kinds of data," says Reinhard Simon, head of CIP's Research Informatics Unit.

The database will be updated as new released data and is available at: http://www.cipotato.org/research/genebank/searchFor more information, visit https://research.cip.cgiar.org/confluence/display/cpx/Germplasm+Passport+and+Evaluation+Data+Search
