"title": "About Genesys",
"body": "<p>GENESYS is a global portal to information about Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (PGRFA). It is a gateway from which germplasm accessions from genebanks around the world can be easily found and ordered. GENESYS is the result of collaboration between <a href=\"http://www.bioversityinternational.org/\" rel=\"nofollow\">Bioversity International</a> on behalf of System-wide Genetic Resources Programme of the CGIAR*, the <a href=\"http://www.croptrust.org/main/\" rel=\"nofollow\">Global Crop Diversity Trust</a> and the <a href=\"http://www.planttreaty.org/index_en.htm\" rel=\"nofollow\">Secretariat of the International Treaty on the Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture</a>. By facilitating access to and use of PGRFA, GENESYS helps to secure its long-term conservation.</p>\n\n<h3>Data Providers to GENESYS</h3>\n<p>When it was launched in 2011, GENESYS was a one-stop access point to the information provided by these three important genetic resources communities:</p>\n<ul><li>The <a href=\"http://eurisco.ecpgr.org/\" rel=\"nofollow\">European Plant Genetic Resources Search Catalogue</a></li><li>The <a href=\"http://singer.cgiar.org/\" rel=\"nofollow\">System-wide Information Network for Genetic Resources</a></li><li>The <a href=\"http://www.ars-grin.gov/\" rel=\"nofollow\">Genetic Resources Information Network of the United States Department of Agriculture</a></li></ul>\n<p>That means it provided access to about one third of the accessions estimated to be held worldwide. However, its coverage will continue to increase over time. All genebanks are welcome to provide data to GENESYS.</p>\n\n<h3>The Data in GENESYS</h3>\n<p>At the launch, in addition to passport data, GENESYS provided access to over 11 million records of characterisation and evaluation data. GENESYS also provides access to millions of records of environmental information associated with accession collecting sites. Its unlimited data capacity allows it to incorporate relevant data from data providers worldwide.\nResearchers, breeders or indeed farmers seeking specific genetic variation can use GENESYS to select, for example, Triticum aestivum accessions with brown kernels collected in Turkey where the annual precipitation is between 150 and 350 mm. They can quickly do so with only about six keystrokes and 12 clicks of the mouse. The accessions meeting the query can then be requested directly from the holding genebank(s).\nTo become a GENESYS data provider, please indicate your interest in doing so and request a copy of the GENESYS Data Sharing Agreement (DSA) from the <a href=\"mailto:genesys-helpdesk&#64;cgiar.org\" rel=\"nofollow\">GENESYS Helpdesk</a>. The GENESYS team will help you load legacy data and provide the utilities for future additions and updates.</p>\n\n<h3>The Future</h3>\n<p>Development of the GENESYS portal is ongoing. Future goals include adding information from many more data providers, enhancing functionality with pedigree management, and expanding the environmental data available all things that our stakeholders have already identified. The user of the information in GENESYS is the most crucial contributor to the future development of the system.

"body": "<p>The data providers to GENESYS independently manage the information stored in, or made accessible to GENESYS.</p>\n<p>Users must contact the specific data providing institute(s) directly, with any questions or comments regarding information stored in GENESYS and for queries regarding the germplasm held in a specific institute(s). The contact person for each institute can be found here by using the FAO Institute Code that accompanies every accession.</p>\n<p>The responsibility of managing requests created using the GENESYS requesting module remains with the individual institiute(s) to where the request is directed. Therefore, GENESYS and Global Crop Diversity Trust, as GENESYS’ legal host entity, will not be held responsible for any errors or negligence in handling the request, or for the inability to fulfill any request. Once a request is completed via the online requesting module, the party requesting the germplasm will be sent a summary of the request specifying the institute(s) which will be processing the request, corresponding contact details, a copy this Disclaimer and the GENESYS Terms and Conditions of Use. Possible claims and complaints related to germplasm requests must be addressed to the specific institute(s) concerned, and not to GENESYS.</p>\n<p>Should the internet service providers, or the facilities associated with the GENESYS requesting module fail, due to causes beyond the control of GENESYS or Crop Trust, neither GENESYS nor Crop Trust will be held responsible for any delays in transmission, delivery, or fulfillment of requests due to these failures.</p>"
