Catalogs of Peanut Germplasm Collections

The USDA ARS Plant Genetic Resources Conservation Unit (PGRCU) in Griffin, GA (USA) maintains a large Arachis germplasm collection. In 2013 it consisted of 9,321 cultivated peanut and 655 wild species accessions when a large-scale project to comprehensively catalog the peanut core and mini core collection was initiated. During this project, pictures were taken to document unique traits of each accession and the catalog represents the considerable effort from the entire team with the goal of comprehensively cataloging the core collection in its entirety. For more information and credits please look at the Introduction and Acknowledgements sections of the mini core catalog below. (Contributor: Noelle Anglin, USDA-ARS)
