Cereals working group

The Cereal collections at NordGen comprises of landraces, cultivars and breeding lines representing the ordinary NordGen collection with about 4 000 accessions. There are also numbers of special collections with more than 15 000 accessions. The special collections are the results from various comprehensive research works and are thus well documented, e.g. Barly Mutants, near-isogenic lines, translocation lines, Triticeae species and local varieties, inbred rye, duplication lines, the Haslund-Christensen expedition material and Åberg collection. The cereal collection includes 94 species.

Data on these cereal accessions can be viewed in the NordGen documentation system SESTO. The Nordic Wheat database has also been made available as a WAIS database, directly searchable from the internet. Data on the Barley Mutant collection can be found in the Untamo database.

The cereal working group has been actively working since 1987 and carried out characterisation and evaluation of NordGen cereal material as well as information distribution and facilitating the utilisation of accessions.

The working group responsible from NordGen are Jan Svensson and Morten Rasmussen.
