Information management and data curation

Data quality for molecular breeding is of paramount importance because large investments in lab and field characterization follow on a relatively small number of genotypes identified by analysis of primary data. Data management for molecular breeding hence requires high standards of sample and pedigree identification as well as integration of field and lab data in ways that are much more demanding and much less forgiving than in conventional breeding.

Use of analysis and decision support tools supported by the Platform and sharing of data across platform partners will require data to be formatted and stored in defined ways which may have to be accommodated by users with existing systems. Under this service, assistance will be provided in installing and parameterising the platform information system for use by breeding projects.
