GRIN-Global Community Edition: A Collective Step Forward for Genebank Data Managers

All genebanks need sound data management to keep track of the inventories of seeds in their cold rooms and fields, and of all their interlinked processes.

Recently, however, CGIAR genebanks have adopted GRIN-Global, an open-source, freely downloadable data management system developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Crop Trust. 

The development of GRIN-Global Community Edition, which builds on GRIN-Global and addresses some gaps in functionality, presents a major opportunity to further transition all CGIAR genebanks to a common, easy-to-use system that can dramatically improve their efficiency.
