Phenome - International Crop Information System (ICIS)
We use an international standard database scheme called ICIS (international crop information system). This scheme was developed during the last two decades by breeders, scientists and programmers in CGIAR centers and is considered a firm standard in the breeding community. Unlike other software that provides a closed 'black box' our database is completely open and can be accessed by the customer. This means that customers’ IT can independently import and export data from and to the database without any intervention by the Phenome-Networks Company. Moreover, any datasets that are already stored as ICIS format (from other sources), can be easily imported into the system 'as is' without any data conversions and reformatting.
