The Wageningen UR Plant Breeding Potato pedigree database has been updated. Almost 200 new cultivars have been added, including 28 potato cultivars released in 2014.
A large amount of pedigree data on current and historic potato cultivars and progenitors has been collected over many years. With the new release, the potato pedigree database now contains data for > 8500 cultivars.
A Web-accessible interface that allows querying of these data, e.g., for the ancestry of a cultivar of interest. This Web interface was recently extended and improved to allow users to create reports and dynamically created pedigree-tree images.
