Computer databases let you look for facts, and find relationships between facts, quickly and efficiently. OAPGRC is creating databases for the four branches of biodiversity: animal, plant, microbial, and marine. Users will be able to find information on the distribution and abundance of all species belonging to Oman's amazing biodiversity, as well as their current and potential uses. The data will be available to researchers, government officials, industry and the general public.
Genetic Resources Information Platform (GRIP)
OAPGRC is creating the Genetic Resources Information Platform(GRIP), a comprehensive database of Oman's plant and animal species. GRIP will be accessible to researchers who are interested in animal and plant genetic resources. The ultimate goal of GRIP is to support and preserve indigenous plants and livestock and empower Oman to respond to biosecurity issues, environmental changes and food Risks.
