Trait and Metabolite Services
The Portal will provide a set of options for users to access laboratories specialised in the evaluation and analysis of specific traits, such as quality traits, pathology screening or metabolite quantification. Analyses of certain secondary traits or metabolites that are indicative of plant stress tolerance can potentially provide valuable information to be used in breeding. Such analyses are generally prohibitively expensive if done locally, as it is difficult to maintain assay quality and devote the necessary resources for expertise, quality control and specialised facilities.
