Historical perspectives on plant science databases
This webinar will discuss the history of database development in the plant sciences, with a focus on European efforts to build international, cross-institutional genebank databases. Although accounts of these often focus on the need for well curated and cross-linked databases to adequately serve research communities, it is equally important to consider the political and economic motivations behind database development. Exploring the history of data management in the plant sciences can potentially help researchers recognise and navigate contemporary challenges.
