Objective

Gene banks have been documenting enormous amounts of genetic material. In the near future a boost of new genetic information will be generated when the largecolllections will be fingerprinted for numerous molecular markers to get a detailed description of the diversity at the molecular level. The explosion of data will pose serious problems on data access and analysis. The proposed project will solve these problems. The consortium will develop and evaluate an integrative information system with many novel analysis methods. The result will be a better informative and cost-effective germplasm management and exploitation system forth benefit of agriculture at the EU and worldwide level. To achieve this, amulet-disciplinary consortium of world-leaders in (bio) informatics, statistical genetics, gene banks and marker technology was formed, and end-users from the international gene bank and breeding community were added.
