Integrated Breeding Platform (IBP) workshop for NARS partners

A demonstration and awareness workshop on Breeding Management System (BMS) of Integrated Breeding Platform (IBP) for Grain Legumes was organized for National Agriculture Research System (NARS) partners. BMS is a suite of interconnected software specifically designed to help breeders manage their research activities through all phases of their breeding program. BMS allows to search the germplasm and available studies in the database, visualize their pedigrees graphically, access historical performance and create custom germplasm lists for breeding programs. BMS also supports…
