Genetic Resources Documentation

Databases and access to information

Documentation is essential in good genebank management to allow efficient and effective use of germplasm. ICRISAT too ensures information access to its genebank by participating in the CGIAR’s Genesys. Genesys is a global portal to information about Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (PGRFA). It is a gateway from which germplasm accessions from genebanks around the world can be easily found and ordered By facilitating and access to and use of PGRFA, Genesys helps to secure it long-term conservation of PGRFA.
