Breeding API (BrAPI)

Project to enable interoperability among plant breeding databases.

The Breeding API (BrAPI) specifies a standard interface for plant phenotype/genotype databases to serve their data to crop breeding applications.

It is a shared, community-developed and open API, to be used by all data providers and data consumers who wish to participate.

BrAPI is a very powerful API that caters for a variety of possible use-cases. Development has focused on the following:

  • Genotype visualization
  • Data transfer
  • Field data collection
  • Geographic visualization
  • R-module data import
  • Powerful search function
