Below are some of the utilities available in the plant breeding section of the software, which allow the breeder and the breeder assistant to design their new experimental hybrids using all the existing information in the database:
- Design of parental characteristics with complex filters using the operators AND, OR, NOT that can be grouped together. It allows adding parameters such as "segregates" and "not evaluated" for a set of characteristics.
- Configuration of forbidden crosses, and crosses that must be swapped, according to the characteristics of the parents.
- Detection of identical family crosses in the list of candidates, according to the qualitative characteristics that are established to determine the equality of one cross with another.
- Hybrid prediction. Automatic search of parents according to the target characteristics.
- Automatic backcross detection.
- Filtered list of candidates according to characteristics of females or males, to examine different parts of the list.
- Planning of the hybrids to be carried out according to the sowing germinations and the established proportionality of females per males. Printing of labels for plants, crosses and new selections.
- Generation of reports: sowing, characteristics of candidates, equal siblings, etc.
- Form for evaluation with automatic advance mode to accelerate characteristics recording by column or by row.
- Utility for copying characteristics of previous accession or between sibling accessions.
- Flexible system to configure the code pattern of lines, experimental hybrids, genetic crosses and backcrosses, admitting any type of parameter.
- Statistics graphs: percentage of each qualitative value of characteristics of candidates and predictions; percentage of selections / plants according to origin, etc.
- NOAH "Portable" application for tablet devices for working at field.
- Tool for the fast creation of lots of research seeds and their labeling at seedbet.
- Tool for the automatic import of laboratory results of molecular markers.
- And many other functionalities for a full management of plant breeding processes.
With these functionalities and many others that NOAH Plant Germplasm ERP provides, the breeder and the breeder assistant have a software solution that allows the complete management of plant breeding processes.
