Genomic Open-source Breeding informatics initiative
Who We Are
We are a team of developers, molecular breeders, statisticians, bioinformaticists and breeders with a rich experience in managing data and applying genomic technologies to improve breeding. We are the first large-scale public-sector effort with the goal to systematically apply high-density genotypic information to the breeding of staple crops in the developing world. Initially the focus is on rice, wheat, maize, sorghum and chickpea in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. The genomic data management systems will include databases, imputation systems, and decision support tools for plant breeders.
OUR MISSIONTo build open-source genomic data management and analysis tools to enable breeders to implement genomic and marker-assisted selection as part of their routine breeding programs.
