Approximately 7 million crop accessions are being conserved in genebank collections worldwide. This resource represents one of the greatest, largely untapped, opportunities for accelerating yield gains and overcoming emerging crop productivity bottlenecks.

To access and creatively utilize this wealth of diversity requires that the material be characterized using state of the art tools, technologies, and methodologies, and that the data and information be subsequently shared in a form that is meaningful to users. DivSeek Intl brings together large-scale genotyping and phenotyping projects, computational and data standards projects with genebanks and germplasm curators.
