Transcript

  • 1. Metadata for the Global Evaluation Trial Repository of CCAFS and interoperability with germplasm data 1st International e-Conference on Germplasm Data Interoperability December 6-20, 2013 Glenn Hyman International Center for Tropical Agriculture
  • 2. Agtrials.org • an information portal developed by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) • provides access to a database on the performance of agricultural technologies at sites across the developing world. • builds on decades of evaluation trials, mostly of varieties, but includes any agricultural technology for developing world farmers. • standardizes data and information to the benefit of crop adaptation research, climate change analyses, future multienvironment trials and research and development in international agriculture.
  • 3. Maps all trials Project Info Latest Posts & Trials Partners Social media www.agtrials.org www.agtrials.org Stat & Videos
  • 4. Trial: 1 crop (many cultivars) 1 growing season 1 location Trials
  • 5. >> Multi-site agricultural trial database (agtrials.org) Observed changes in growing season temperature for crop growing regions,1980-2008. Lobell et al (2011) Effect of +1ºC warming on yield 20,000+ maize trials in 123 research sites Sites with >23ºC would suffer even if optimally managed More than 20% loss in sites with >20ºC, under drought Lobell et al. 2011
  • 6. Dynamic link to CropOntology provides terminology and definitions for traits and variables measured http://www.cropontology-curationtool.org/ http://www.agtrials.org
  • 7. Connection to Genebank Data: with CropOntology group, we are doing exploratory research to make these links. Cassava has been completed so far.
  • 8. Information for our Partners AgTrials can be used as a trial server for accessing information for your own website or application
  • 9. Status Update • 254 registered users (93 of whom have not entered the application) • 42 technologies (mostly crops) • 34,523 trials • Maize has the largest number of trials (29,188) followed by common bean (1,866), cassava (1,613), sorghum (359), rice (388) and others • 89,170 varieties/races at 2,473 sites in 110 countries
  • 10. Agtrials Metadata – information about the data • Some of it we made up • Relies on www.cropontology.org • Uses document repository to acquire information about the data • Concern: how to map our metadata to other systems • Concern: how much metadata to include • Concern: Metadata and/or data?
  • 11. 2014 Goals • Fully incorporate roots tubers and bananas trial data from the CGIAR RTB team • Other CRPs to participate • Integration with AgMIP. • Continued efforts to increase the number of trials in the system (please contact us about your participation) • Acquire resources to advance the initiative
  • 12. Thank you!
