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. This information from "http://singer.cgiar.org" and "http://www.cgiar.org/impact/genebanksdatabases.html"
