Integrated Breeding Platform

Today's tools for tomorrow's crops

newLOGO-IBP-web-150The Integrated Breeding Platform (IBP) is a web-based one-stop shop for information, analytical tools and related services to design and carry out integrated breeding projects.

IBP is conceived as a vehicle for dissemination of knowledge and technology, enabling broad access to and proactive distribution of crop genetic stocks and breeding material; molecular, genomics and informatics technology and information; cost-effective high-throughput laboratory services; and capacity building programmes. Its primary clients are developing-country breeders.

Coordinated by the CGIAR Generation Challenge Programme, the development of the Platform is a project bringing together numerous partners and several key funders.

IBP's centrepiece is the Breeding Management System (BMS, previously known as the Integrated Breeding Workflow System, IBWS).
