SESTO  - is a genebank management tool developed by the Nordic Gene Bank (today Nordic Genetic Resource Center, NordGen). The application has gradually been developed into a more generic PGR information system and is now adopted for management and presentation of data from other genebanks in other parts of the world. This work is still in progress. 

Svalbard global seed portal  - The seed portal is a way to find basic information about the seed samples conserved in the Seed Vault and also provides a way to submit inventories of the material for depositing.
