Efforts in genomics since the late 90s have led to major advances in understanding the biological process underlying the variation of traits, including key traits of agronomical interest. But a gap still remains for their application to the development of new cultivars beneficial to the society. New efforts are needed to bridge genomics and crop genetic diversity analysis. New programs should include extensive characterisation of genetic diversity in relationship with (i) new phenotyping approaches including proteomics and transcriptomics, (ii) mapping information at the genetic, physical and sequence levels. Ultimately, all data should be combined using appropriate methodologies and software to extract new knowledge.
The URGI platform aims at providing tools for such an approach. It allows biologists and bioinformaticians to store and retrieve data from a large number of origin. These data can be combined to extract new knowledge.
The URGI platform can help biologists in the management and the valorisation of their data in connection with those obtained by the scientific community. The URGI platform also develops new tools to identify and to manage these connections. We have developed an information system called GnpIS and associated pipelines providing a complete annotation system.
