Group Objective

The objective of this group is to bring together Gene Bank Curators, Breeders, and Database Developers to:

  • Facilitate the genomic characterization of gene bank accessions and
  • Develop a database to make genotype data fallow the FAIR principles and help link genetic sequence data to physical plant genetic resources.

This group aims to identify methods, standards and best practices for sharing data about plant genomic resources (PGR).

Expected Outcomes

Review papers, trainings, webinars and workshops to identify gaps and find solutions to improve the utilization of genomic data for gene bank management and utilization of PGR in breeding.

Group Leaders

Chris Richards (USDA) and Robert Davey (Earlham Institute).
