Why choose RnDExp™ vegetable breeding software ?
Gautier Semences has started to centralize and standardize their vegetable breeding data and processes with RnDExp™ in 2009, mainly for two reasons:
- Enhance their tracking of vegetable germplasm and seeds, notably to compel with vegetable seed production quality regulations
- Perpetuate and valorize researchers’ intellectual assets by digitalizing and centralizing their methods and agronomist tools
The deployment has been done for vegetables and fruits : lettuce, squash, tomato, melon, pepper and cauliflower.
How vegetable breeders switched breeding software ?
Gautier vegetable breeders have been audited by Doriane's team of consultants in collaboration with the Data Informatics manager of Gautier Semences R&D. Then RnDExp™ plant breeding software has been installed and the breeding teams trained. The 2 main factors of success :
✔ Audit, installation and training by Doriane support team
✔ High engagement of Data Informatics manager of Gautier
“We appreciate the good listening, comprehending and problem-solving skills of Doriane support team. Every time we request an optimization of the configuration, they provide quality assistance, including guidance, testing and feedback exchanges.” Charles-Antoine, Data informatics Manager
Accelerating and securing Gautier's laboratory
At Gautier Semences, most researchers use RnDExp™ tools to handle their R&D and breeding processes, such as crosses, trials, pathology testing and seed quality. Every vegetable breeder of the team centralizes research data in the database and they information depending on their user’s rights. The whole system is supported by Gautier’s Data Informatics manager Charles-Antoine, with the help of Doriane consultants when needed.
Laboratory processes have also been totally integrated to the research IT system, without disturbing the routine of breeders. This crucial activity has greatly benefited from RnDExp™, notably for molecular markers analysis that must be done as fast and accurately as possible.
“We’ve saved time with this optimization and the risk of errors has been reduced. The whole team is happy about it !” Gautier Semences' biotech manager about the automation of the laboratory
In the end, more security and much time saved in vegetable breeding !
- Every piece of information is centralized. Breeders and testers share research work and all the processes start in RnDExp™ and every data end up there.
- Save time and reduce the risk of errors in some activities of the breeding department
