THE EUROPEAN BRASSICA DATABASE

Keywords:   Genetic Resources, Brassica, cole crops, central crop databases, documentation
Abstract:
The European database for Brassica, abbreviated ‘Bras-EDB’, was developed by the Centre for Genetic Resources The Netherlands (CGN). The objectives of this database are to support rationalization of Brassica germplasm conservation and to improve the access to the Brassica germplasm for users. The database focuses on passport data of the genus Brassica maintained in European collections. Also characterization data of a restricted number of descriptors are currently included. By September 1997 the database contained 13000 accessions, from 21 collections in 17 countries. The species B. oleracea is represented with the highest number of accessions (57%), followed by B. napus (17%) and B. rapa (16%). The database includes cultivated as well as wild material.

Completing, updating and analysing the database are ongoing activities. The database is available on internet at the newly established ‘European Information Platform on Crop Genetic Resources’ (www.cgiar.org/ecpgr/platform), or on diskette to be requested from the authors.
