Guide Plant Breeding Technician IT

Plant Breeding Software, Agricultural Research Software and Internet bookmarks Edit

I highly recommend obtaining plant breeding software such as listed below, if you can afford it. Otherwise, if funds are limited, one can get by with a flatfile database [1] such as MS-Works, a label wizard and a spreadsheet program with macro capabilities.Just a database isn't enough because numerous new records need to be created each year based on identity and pedigree information from the previous year. It's best to automate this somehow with Macros or a VBA addin for MS-Excel or MS-Access. Another problem I ran into was that I could get MS-Access to create a lined notebook page but I had trouble figuring out how to get the line type to change after every fifth record. Almost all MS-Access reports in books on MS-Access are unlined. With MS-Excel, creating a lined notebook in which the line type changes for every fifth record was very easy. You can use Access as your database but a relational database isn't completely necessary.

Each year's data was saved as .dbf files. In 2016, I would probably keep the files as .csv format rather than in some proprietary format.

A simple Excel Addin written in VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) would be nice.If you have an interest in programming you might also consider the OpenOffice Macro programming language (for LINUX OS), Java (for multi-platform compatibility), Visual Basic, Python and perhaps even LISP (an Expert system written in LISP might be built on top).
