Plant Breeding software
Management of breeding processes for research departments
Plant breeding is a long working process to create new varieties with better characteristics, such as plant resistance to disease, climatic conditions, parasites, increase productivity, expand their nutritional value, taste, etc.
Breeder obtain new varieties after many years of work, and successive purges of varieties to find the best ones.
To manage these different breeding processes, and the amount of data over the year, Doriane provides RnDExp Software, to help breeders in their decision making and lead them to their objectives.
RnDExp handles all crops schemes: self pollinated, hybrid, population, and propagation
- Easy to use for small teams as well as large research departements.
- Accurate tracking of breeding processes from crosses preparation to hybrids and varieties launching.
- High level administration and access rights control.
- No programming required to customize the software and fit your specific business rules.
Can I manage my germplasm and its characteristics?
In RnDExp, breeders can store their germplasm and have a real-time view of all their material, and its characteristics. To find easily an information on a material, breeders can manage their specific interface presentations displaying traits that interest them, or use the quick filter tool to query the stock of material inputting multiple criteria.
Is it possible to manage my germplasm quantities?
In RnDExp, there is a real-time view of material quantities, and automatic adjustment after use of material for an experience. The software can also send some alert in case of seed insufficient regarding for example implementation of trials.
Does the system ensure the traceability of my seed material?
RnDExp stores all actions in its database, tracking all action between the stock of material and the experiments. So, the software ensures the traceability of all seed movement and breeders can visualize historical data of their seed material regarding their research activities.
Can I visualize pedigree and genealogy using this system?
RnDExp displays the pedigree of your material and provides an interactive genealogy tool to explore traits and characteristics of materials over generation. This interactive tool can display traits, characteristics, picture, to provide the breeders all information they require for the study of variety.
Can I configure user profile?
Each breeder or team has their own preferences, and RnDExp enables the team administrator to setup rules on every user, or group of users.
RnDExp helps team manage their germplasm and helps ensure the continuity of its inventory
