A Breeding Resources Initiative Webinar.

Watch the recording here:

For: CGIAR / NARES breeders, crop leads and other program team members; donors; private sector and other interested partners


The success of breeding will depend on our ability to deliver reliable data, information and insights into market segments. CGIAR is preparing to officially launch a genotyping sample submission portal as a step towards these goals.

The shared genotyping services will be the sole entry point for all shared services submissions. This is expected to streamline sample forecasting, logistic management and reduce administrative burden for all users.

This virtual event will describe the benefits of the portal, how it works, how users can use the tool, and support provided by the Breeding Resources Initiative and Scriptoria.

The event will cover:

  • Introduction

  • Overview of the tool and system: vision, need, benefits, use

  • Introduction to the scriptoria online system with demonstration

  • Questions
