IBP Website FAQs
I hear this is more than just a website. How so?
The IBP website is meant as a central reference for breeders to access knowledge, tools and networks to improve their efficiency. As such, registered users will find various community resources, including open source software, publications, peer forums, online tutorials, public-access genetic resources and negotiated rates with a network of preferred service providers.
When logged on our website, users can also interact with other users and IBP staff. Join a User Community and submit a question to the group!
