I figured in the present day I’d tweet a few cool new function of Genesys, the on-line portal to genebank accessions. And I did, however then I assumed I ought to actually put it on right here too. So right here goes.
The use case I’ll think about in the present day is:
I’ve an accession I like, and I do know the place it was collected. Show me all different accessions anyplace in the world that come from a roughly related local weather.
Here’s what you do. Hang on to your butts.
When you may have chosen the accession you want in Genesys, go to Map, and look for this on the far left.
Click on Show Climate…
Then click on in your accession on the map. You’ll get a abstract description of the local weather at that time.
If you then click on on List Accessions (backside left hand nook), you’ll get an inventory of all accessions from locations that are roughly comparable in local weather to that of the accession which you clicked. I can clarify how that’s calculated individually if individuals are .
Or, you possibly can select a kind of bioclimatic variables listed, determine on some max and min values, go to Filter Accessions on the left of the map, and insert your chosen values in the applicable place on the menu that ought to seem (scroll down).
Click on Apply Filters at the high of the menu, and there’s an inventory of accessions once more, this time from locations with climates inside your chosen limits.
Let me know in feedback you probably have any questions, or certainly concepts for enchancment.
Here’s a PDF of the Twitter thread.
