Research within Plant breeding are dealing with a lot of data, obtained from field-trials but also from high-throughput analysis of molecular markers, RNA transcripts (microarrays), proteins and secondary metabolites. An efficient database will help in elucidating the genetics of economically important traits, in identifying molecular markers associated with agronomic traits, in allele mining and choosing interesting accessions fur further breeding with improved traits important for consumers, processors and producers.
BreeDB support breeding for quantitative agronomical traits. The database can be explored through a web-based interface, which offers tools to present basic statistical overviews such as box plots , histograms, but also multivariate tools. Graphical genotyping tools are available to show molecular marker data and QTL data in relation to genetic linkage maps. In addition, photos of each accession can be shown together with a detailed report of observations made on this accession.
