The FIGS sets conserved in the AGG are available to the Australian scientific community upon request. You can make a request to the genebank by contacting Sally Norton firstname.lastname@example.org If you would like to discuss if or not FIGS could
Many Australian collaborators have received FIG accessions and if you have evaluated then it is of utmost importance to share the results with the genebank when you are finished. This data is invaluable, not only help refine the FIGS process,
Offshore evaluations using FIGS which are of relevance to Australia
While research to refine the predictive power of FIGS is ongoing it is routinely deployed in the hunt for previously undiscovered traits and for genetic ICARDA distributes over 30,000 accessions annually (less since the Syrian conflict) and as it leads
Has FIGS actually help find valuable trait sources?
While research to refine the predictive power of FIGS is ongoing it is routinely deployed in the hunt for previously undiscovered traits and for genetic variation of current traits required by the plant breeding community. The following table details some
How many FIG accessions have been distributed in Australia?
So far over 21,400 accessions belonging to FIGS sets have been distributed from the winter cereals collection and the temperate legumes collections to the local user community as indicated in the table below. *total distribution: includes cases of multiple dispatches
