This database consist of nearly 554 accessions. It contains the quantitative data of ragi. There are about 13 quantitative characters.The variation between the accessions for each character is represened in the form of variation graph.

The database is designed by Genomics and Proteomics Lab, in the Centre for Plant Molecular Biology, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University,Coimbatore, India. The seeds will be maintained at , Department of plant breeding and genetics, Tamil nadu agricultural university, coimbatore. This database has been updated frequently.
