Cassavabase, an open access database on Cassava Research
Friday, 2013/05/03 | 08:18:48

Six months after the launch of the $25.2M NEXTGEN Cassava project at Cornell University, scientists on the project have released Cassavabase, a database that promotes open access data sharing. Cassavabase features all phenotypic and genotypic data generated by cassava breeding programs involved in the NEXTGEN Cassava project (http://www.nextgencassava.org/ ), and makes the data immediately and openly accessible to all users prior to publication. The NEXTGEN Cassava project aims to use the latest advances in breeding methodology to improve productivity and yield in cassava production, incorporate cassava germplasm diversity from South America into African breeding programs, train the next generation of plant breeders, and improve infrastructure at African institutions.

 

To access Cassavabase, go to http://www.cassavabase.org. The original article is available at http://bti.cornell.edu/nextgen-cassava-project-sets-precedent-for-open-access-data-sharing-in-agricultural-research/.
