I’ve decided to promote a couple of Nibbles from Monday to a full post. Because they’re important and I don’t want them to get overlooked, and I just don’t know how many people actually work through all the Nibbles. Maybe I should have led with these.
Anyway, the thing is, the USDA’s National Plant Germplasm System has just launched its new GRIN-Global webpage.1 Through it, you can search for, and order, material from any of the system’s constituent genebanks. Of which there are, you know, a lot.
Meanwhile, the potato-breeding machine that is Cultivariable has started publishing his latest evaluation data on (some of) the USDA’s potato germplasm (click on “Evaluation Year” and choose “2020”).
But will it find its way into any of the above-mentioned databases?
