The service centre GCBN offers CATS (Crop Analysis Tool Suite), which includes a web application for exploratory data analysis of the genomic diversity data derived from studies based on the concept of gene bank genomics. The concept of gene bank genomics is about to gain insight into the diversity of genetic resources stored in gene banks and to allow the utilisation of this mainly untapped diversity for breeding and further research and exploitation. BRIDGE is an interactive web tool for exploratory data analysis of a gene bank genomics study of more than 20,000 barley accessions. The tool helps researchers and breeders to keep the overview about the massive amount of data and to derive a benefit from diversity data through context-based data visualisation and data export.

Learning goals:
The goal of this training course is to provide an introduction into the BRIDGE web application, its available data domains and its use for data visualisation, exploratory data analysis and data export for different use cases of specific research interests.

The training course is aimed at young scientists such as PhD students and postdocs, but also at experienced scientists who want to learn more about exploratory data analysis, visualization and exploitation of plant diversity data for use in breeding and research.
