The International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) is a premier research institution in Africa. It is the home of a major genebank for staple crops of sub Saharan Africa, part of the Genetic Resources Centre (GRC) of IITA at its headquarters in Ibadan, Nigeria. GRC collects, conserves, characterises, documents and distributes accessions of important clonal (cassava, yam, banana and plantain) and seed (cowpea, maize, soybean, other legumes) crops to all those around the world who request them for breeding and research.
A major aspect of the work of GRC is to effectively document the collection of germplasm (georeferencing etc) and to bring this together with agro-morpohological and molecular characterisation and other data in a way which is accessible, user friendly and can be easily integrated with other databases across the Institute and beyond
