Noah demo example: searching accessions for advancing tomato lines of year 2018, research center A or B, origin with code that contains T999 or Laura, filial less than F5, leaf attitude drooping or horizontal, leaf type dwarf or peruvianum, and follage density not dense. The design of each filter can be saved in the system.
Noah provides a configurable tool for the automatic import of molecular markers laboratory analysys. What prevents errors, saves time, and allows to check the consistency of the results, as well as printing a report to compare the current values to the new ones.
When you have a list of candidates for new experimental hybrids, Noah tells you: characteristics of the parents and prediction of the hybrid. Filial and pedigree (previous, origin, female, male ...). If the hybrid already exists in the database. If in the list there are equal siblings or equal relative crosses. If the crossing is forbidden or must be swapped according to the established rules of characteristics. If the crossing has been swapped by the system or by the user. if the accession segregates for any characteristic. And it allows to add several icons with annotations.
The excellent performance of Noah allows response times of between 5 and 15 seconds for the most complex searches performed on databases with several million accessions. This response time is stable regardless of the volume of information stored. All the technology behind Noah is provided by Microsoft Corp, and in particular Noah uses the best features provided by Microsoft SQL Server.
The breeder search for accessions according to their pedigree and filial information using many conditional options and grouping them with the operators AND, OR, NOT. Into text fields you can choose between: exact search, contains, starting or ending by, greater or less than (alphanumeric ordering) and with the multiple option you can enter a list of codes. Noah is optimized to perform searches throughout ancestors and descendants, so that response times are around 5 seconds in databases of several million accessions.
Bullsoft engineers will never access customer data, neither old data imported during the implementation process, nor the Noah database when the system is in production and is updated. Bullsoft has developed a protocol that guarantees privacy and allows customer's IT department to perform these tasks effectively and safely.
The characterization filter allows the breeder to design the characteristics for advancing lines or for parentals of new hybrids. It supports molecular markers and cuantitative or cualitative data. Noah provides options for managing Segregation and Evaluated/Not_evaluated conditions (for a group of characteristics or for one of them). You can add many filters using the operators AND, OR, NOT; you can reorder them, and you can tabulate them grouping the filters to perform complex searches. The designed filters can be saved to be reused in the future.
Noah shows summary of characteristics, pedigree and offspring of the accession. The user can click on each pedigree or offspring accession and load it. With the navigation controls the user can go through the displayed accessions from front to back and vice versa, inspecting their characteristics.
2 ways Noah software grants users access to plant breeding and product development data. These features allows your company to have control of the actions that users can perform.
- Accessions are classified into Areas. Each user can only see information related to accessions that belong to their areas. Accessions can be promoted from one area to another and only suitable users know the relationship between codes.
- Each user plays one or several roles in your company. You can configure roles according to your requirements, establishing what methods of the Noah API can execute each role.
