Thereʼs a shift happening in plant science
Most of the people we've worked with use a vast range of personal systems and habits to manage their data, ranging for the pen & paper notebook and Excel files, to generic databases, or somewhat more sophisticated desktop applications. We understand the need of stakeholders to keep full control of their data. They don't want to be locked in: a good data management system should allow them to keep access to their data in perpetuity, and to use other tools complementarily.
We also believe that more and more researchers wish they could centralize their knowledge for institutional memory, though still want to remain flexible and independent enough to keep some work autonomous of others. They need to ensure data security and confidentiality, all the while enabling the possibility to share data with colleagues and collaborators in determined circumstances. They sometimes also contend with technological limitations in terms of infrastructure or abilities, but hope to integrate the latest methods and tools nonetheless, to keep the pace with advances on the international scene.
We are experts in accompanying scientists towards full digitization
We accompany organizations in their shift to electronic data capture, in making better use of information systems, in integrating marker technologies, and in ensuring data security all the while enabling team collaboration. See here our vast portfolio of projects and networks
BMS Pro – our custom-built system addresses the very specific needs of plant breeders in data management. Our team of experts is also available to help with training, system installation, data management, technical support and updating institutional policies and practices for knowledge sharing.
