The second part of the database comprises of basic information about all 10000 Swedish barley mutants to find their origin material of degeneration, mutagens used for induction, inheritance, connection to BGS descriptions and more. The database is easy to be used, by names, symbols and other objects the researcher is looking for. The database is available under the address and will be updated continuously.
