Genesys Multicrop Database

by Administrator - 18 Jul 2024 4623 Views 0 Comment

Genesys is a global multicrop portal providing access to information on germplasm accessions. Genesys is supported by the Secretariat of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA), in partnership with Bioversity International (Bioversity) and the Global Crop Diversity Trust (GCDT).

The Coconut germplasm data available in the Coconut Genetic Resources Database (CGRD6.0) was transmitted to Genesys on June 2012 in the framework of the  project  “Upgrading international coconut genebanks and evaluating accessions” funded by the Global Crop Diversity Trust; as of 23th August 2012, the Coconut Germplasm is not yet visible, but it will become available soon.

You can access the Genesys portal here.

The overall goal of the Genesys portal is to provide users with improved access to the millions of accessions held in genebanks worldwide. In fact, information beyond the identifying passport data -traditionally available in online genebank systems- has been made available to plant breeders, scientists and other users.
