General project description

Genesys

Genesys PGR (Plant Genetic Resources) is a free online global portal which allows the exploration of the world’s crop diversity through a single website.

First launched in 2008, it is the largest database of plant genetic resources, containing 2.8 million genebank accessions, which add up to around a third of the world’s genebank samples.

Genesys is a powerful platform that allows breeders and other genebank users to quickly search for – and request – crop samples located in 446 institutes around the globe. Instead of trawling through numerous databases, users find in Genesys one single entry-point to global PGR information.
