The CIMMYT Genetic Resources Center (GRC) maintains a large collection of maize and wheat germplasm at the center's Gene Bank.   Part of the GRC's operation is to distribute requested seeds to cooperators. This project will hope to facilitate the seed distribution workflow, from the receipt of request to the actual shipment operation of the center.

Current Distribution System

Two systems are used to facilitate nursery and seed distribution in CIMMYT -- Wheat International Nursery System (WINS) and  International Maize Testing System for wheat and maize respectively.

Proposed CIMMYT Seed Distribution System (CSDS)

This intended system, named CIMMYT Seed Distribution System(CSDS) will facilitate seed distribution for both maize and wheat, and other crops such as barley.

Proposed CSDS System

Specifications

The system will :

  • will be refered to as the CIMMYT Seed Distribution System (CSDS).
  • accommodate different crops. (wheat, maize, triticale, barley).
  • should be able to accommodate other requests like soil samples, leaf DNA etc.
  • be used for requests for international nurseries, special nurseries and specific seeds.
  • be web-based (for cooperator's use) and stand-alone (for administrative tasks).
  • use one main database - the CSDS DB, and will possibly connect to IWIS and IMIS
