Poster: HIDAP-A unified platform for clonal crops breeders

Breeding programs involve large investments of time and money, but can pay very large returns on investment in the form of improved varieties which benefit farmers, societies and the environment. International breeding efforts involving multiple partners and targeting regionally important constraints have great potential for efficiently and rapidly achieving impact. Standardized information on the performance of progenies and selected clones across environments is necessary in order to assist breeders to efficiently make decisions about selection and variety release. Standardized methods also facilitate sharing and reporting of breeding program results with colleagues and the agencies that support us. A number of tools already exist to help with standardised breeding information management. For clonal crop breeders, the challenge has been how to improve the usability and power of existing tools, leveraging on advancements in various open source software technologies in the breeding space. The Highly Interactive Data Analysis Platform (HIDAP) has been developed to address the above challenge
