Imagine counting, analyzing, and categorizing all the money in a multitude of bank vaults - daunting, yes? Nevertheless, a consortium of 69 leading agricultural and genetic research centers, including the iPlant Collaborative, is now attempting a similar feat: To systematically characterize the genetic, physical, and biochemical composition of seeds stored in the vaults of seed banks. The DivSeek initiative, which unveiled its monumental goal in advance of the International Plant and Animal Genome conference (PAG2015) in San Diego, CA, aims to collect information from the seeds that can then be used to exploit plant traits, including drought tolerance and pest resistance, to produce improved crop varieties.

“We can make a real difference.” Alice Muchugi, Genetic Resources Unit Manager at the World Agroforestry Center, watched as the African Orphan Crops Consortium (AOCC) and African Plant Breeder's Academy graduated its first class of 23 plant breeders last week. The scientists are trained in techniques to create improved planting materials for African smallholder farmers. The AOCC are partners of the iPlant Collaborative.

A massive genome analysis project has sequenced the genomes of 48 bird and 3 crocodile species, opening new doors to understanding the evolution of dinosaurs’ living descendants. The capacity to compare and analyze all 51 genomes was made possible by CoGe, a platform powered by the iPlant Collaborative at the University of Arizona.
