  • Biological Resource Centre for Tropical Plants, West Indies

    The Biological Resource Centre for Tropical Plants based in Guadeloupe and Martinique is managed by INRA and CIRAD. It groups six collections of cultivated plants (Ananas sp., Musa sp., Saccharum sp., Dioscorea sp., fruit trees, and ornementals).

  • Biological Resource Center for Tropical Plants, Montpellier

    Biological Resource Center for Tropical Plants, Montpellier

    The Centre de Ressources Biologiques Tropicales (CRB-T) based in Montpellier is managed by the Laboratoires des Semences et Ressources Génétiques (LSRG) of CIRAD. It holds seed genebanks of several tropical crops with an emphasis on rice germplasm. The other crops maintained are sorghum, cotton, peanut, maize, soja, fonio and few other ones.

  • French Plant Genomic Resources Centre

    French Plant Genomic Resources Centre

    Set up by INRA in 2004, the French Plant Genomic Resources Centre (CNRGV or Centre National de Ressources Génomiques Végétales) holds the most relevant BAC and cDNA collections from top public-sector laboratories and private laboratories for model and cultivated plants: Arabidopsis thaliana, Medicago truncatula, tomato, wheat, pepper, grapevine, rapeseed, maize, pea and sunflower. It is not only a repository centre for all these plant genomic libraries but also a service provider dedicated to the scientific community.

  • Biological Resource Center for Medicago trunculata

    Biological Resource Center for Medicago trunculata

    INRA Montpellier owns the world second largest collection of natural diversity of Medicago truncatula. It is the only collection currently organised and managed so that it responds to the needs of scientists in the area of genomics, by offering populations, inbred lines, recombinant inbred lines, and F1 hybrids and progenies. The material is already being widely distributed to the international scientific community with more than 1,500 samples sent every year over the past six years.

  • INRA Plant Genetic Resource Collections

    INRA manages genetic resource collections for more than 50 plant species: model plants for genome study, crop species (cereals, fodder, oilseed crops, market garden crops and fruit trees) and decorative species (lawn and ornamental plants). This network includes the collection of maize that is maintained at INRA research station of Melgueil near Montpellier. More

    INRA set up a plant genetic resources information system named SIReGal, a database and web interface containing passport, taxonomic and phenotypic information about genetic resources from French national collections. Currently, data are available for the grapevine, wheat, Prunus (cherry), nuts (chestnut) and pea.

  • GnpIS : URGI Information System

    GnpIS : URGI Information System

    URGI Information System is a web based system composed of several applications built above a relational database that includes integrated schemes for sequence data (EST, mRNA), map data (genetic maps, QTL maps), transcriptome data, proteomic data, and polymorphism data.

    The goal of this system is to set up a complete and integrated bioinformatics web environment for the analysis of genetic and genomic data. This System was built for the Génoplante  project which is the main French genomic project working on plant models (Arabidopsis, rice) and crop species (Maize, Wheat, Pea, Sunflower, Rape) but also on other species of interest such as Grape and Celery. Today it is open to other non-génoplante projects.
