SINGER (Systems-Wide Information Network for Genetic Resources)
Entry ID: SINGER


Summary
Abstract: The System-wide Information Network for Genetic Resources (SINGER) was
established in 1994 and provides public access through the internet and on
CD-ROM. SINGER is the genetic resources information exchange network of the
International Agricultural Research Centres of the Consultative Group on
International Agricultural Research (CGIAR). It provides access to information
on the collections of genetic resources held by the CGIAR Centres. Together,
these collections comprise over half a million samples of crop, forage and tree
germplasm of major importance for food and agriculture.

Sharing knowledge and best practices in collection, conservation, and
characterization are key activities for sustainable management of plant genetic
resources. SINGER is a relational database that links the databases of 11
Future Harvest Centers having genebanks. The database is searchable by
taxonomy, geographic source, accession identification, material transfer
recipients, and characterization results. SINGER is a powerful tool that
permits searches using multiple criteria including five descriptors. SINGER is
continuously updated so that users have easy access to the latest information.
