Academy of Sciences of Republic of Uzbekistan Institute of Genetics and Plant Experimental Biology Development of Information System on Cotton Genepool for Creating New Highly Qualified Cotton Species Head of the Project : PhD, Abdullaev Fayzulla Khabibullaevich PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT: • Developing of information system management on cotton genepool, maintenance of its availability to information users, gathering of new information, registration and its transformation according by the international standards. TA S K S O F T H E P R O J E C T : • For developing of new early, high-yielding, high-quality, resistant to diseases and pests and extreme conditions of habitat of cotton cultivars, it is necessary search of a qualitative initial material from available genepool, comprehensive analysis of a breeding material, and also acceleration of breeding process and without use of information technology methods not to manage any. • Information system will be issued according to modern databases and the information systems by responding international standards. E X P E C T E D R E S U LT A N D E F F E C T FROM THE PROJECT : • The Information System on Cotton Genepool for an effective exchange of the necessary information in work and purposeful use of the given information in genetic and breeding research and other directions of a biological science, and also for cooperation with the regional and international organizations on the basis of intellectual property right will be developed. • Efficiency of preservation, documenting, management and use of cotton genetic resources by means of adjustment of information and germplasm exchange inside and outside of the republic will be raised. E X P E C T E D R E S U LT A N D E F F E C T FROM THE PROJECT : Project realization will provide: • Information transfer available now into modern level of conservation and use according by international requirements; • Design of the advanced data management systems on genepool; • Introduction of new information technologies to biological and agricultural science; • Information availability to users and its effective use in an agricultural science and practice; • Considerable acceleration of breeding process at new cultivars developing; • Publishing of descriptors, catalogues, publications; • Protection of intellectual property rights. PROSPECTIVE ACTIONS OF THE PROJECT : • • • • • • Gathering and the analysis of the information on cotton germplasm characteristics, unification and standardization of characteristics for the basic descriptors will be carried out. The basic descriptors on germplasm characteristics on the basis of the scientifically-proved ordering components of information system will be made. Spreadsheets of information system and input the information in a database will be developed. Inquiries of data will be designed; forms of information representation and reports on germplasm characteristics are created. Work on database approbation, completions on germplasm characteristics and development of procedures on addition of a database with the new information will be carried out. The information on cotton genepool characteristics for the publication of catalogues and other publications will be prepared. T H A N K S F O R YO U R AT T E N T I O N !
