EMBRAPA shares data for more than 190.000 accessions on Genesys

We are happy to announce that the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA) is now a data provider to Genesys, thanks to a collaboration undertaken by the Crop Wild Relatives Project to strengthen genebank information systems globally. Genesys users can find now information about rice, beans, barley, wheat and other crops currently conserved throughout the different collections of the Brazilian system.

Some of the genebanks publishing their germplasm passport data on Genesys have also enabled the option to place plant samples requests through our portal. Here you can find a list of crops and the institutions offering this option:

Introducing data overviews

Data overviews provide a quick summary on composition of accession collections. Overall overview of data in Genesys shows that wheat, rice, barley, maize and sorghum represent 35% of accessions in Genesys. 15% of accessions in Genesys were matched with Svalbard Global Seed Vault data.

Look for "Overview" links on institute and country pages and the "Overview" button when browsing and filtering data.
