Overall objective:

To bridge the gap between the information requirements of genebank curators, rice breeders and more targeted upstream biological researchers, to support applied germplasm curation, forward-looking rice breeding programs and strategic rice research

Specific objective:

To adopt and implement the agreed method for the assignation of global, permanent and unambiguous identification of rice accessions and the development of a platform to establish automatized system-to-system connections to add value to the material being transferred within and from the Multilateral System, thus meeting both scientific needs and legal obligations of the SMTA.
