Research Data Support
The Breeding Management System (BMS) helps manage breeding data across all phases of the crop improvement cycle.
ICRISAT open data repository built on dataverse to share, preserve, cite, explore and analyze research data.
A browser-based tool for the visual comparison of various maps (sequence, genetic, etc.) from ICRISAT crops.
ICRISAT Galaxy instance hosts tools for breeding data analysis, data converters, GS, imputation, Structure analysis etc
A dashboard for Historical ICRISAT weather data from 1978 for parameters like Temperature, Rainfall, Radiation etc.
A dashboard of District Level Data for India on socio-economic, environment, nutrition and health indicators.
Breeding DOI Portal
Breeding DOI portal is a breeder friendly GUI to assign DOIs to the breeding material.
What we do?
Data Management and Analytical Support (DMAS) is a cross-cutting cluster of ICRISAT with a mandate to provide high quality data support to ICRISAT researchers. Main focus areas of DMAS are providing advanced data analytical solutions to ICRISAT and partnering NARS. DMAS provides research data analytic solutions in solving complex research problems in the fields of biometrics, and statistics. DMAS cluster is a group of statistician experts and data programmers working together to ensure a strong data ecosystem in ICRISAT.
Bioinformatics & Statistical Genomics
The theme provides advanced computational and bioinformatics support includes a range of bioinformatics analysis. Expertise includes molecular marker analysis, genetic linkage map construction, genome visualization, imputation, allele discovery for desired traits using (GWAS), QTL/linkage mapping, performing rapid generation selection and estimating GEBVs by using genomic selection (GS), understanding population structure and etc.
Efficient Experiments and Advanced Data Analysis
The theme has excellent expertise in generating efficient and statistically sound experimental designs for generating complex agricultural experiments. Further, performing various analysis including but not limited to multi-site GxE analysis, spatial analysis of trials. It is also involved in providing on-farm trial management support and statistics consultancy to researchers and scholars.
Data Management & Digitalization of Breeding Programs
Strong Data Management support is another key activity of DMAS which includes data compilation, cleaning, and curation of data, developing and maintaining data sharing repositories through open sources and propriety technologies. This theme is involved in providing supports to ICRISAT breeders and other scientists in digitalizing breeding activities by introducing modern databases and modern ways of data capture.
