Welcome to T3/Barley

The Triticeae Toolbox (T3) is the web portal for data generated by the Triticeae Coordinated Agricultural Project (T-CAP), funded by the National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). It also contains data from US Uniform Regional Nurseries, supported by the US Wheat and Barley Scab Initiative. The database was initially developed as The Hordeum Toolbox (THT) at the website hordeumtoolbox.org to hold barley data generated by the Barley CAP project (2006-2010). T3 Barley is an extension of The Hordeum Toolbox and incorporates all the THT data. The database was further developed at the website triticeaetoolbox.org/barley. That website was archived in June 2020 and all the data moved to this current site.

Submit Phenotype Data

Phenotype data can be submitted to T3/Barley in two ways:

Using the Sandbox

When using the sandbox, you create upload templates that contain the trial information. Then, you upload those templates to the Sandbox to check for any errors. When the trial has been successfully added you can use the Submit Trial function to submit the trial directly to us for inclusion in the production site. Visit the T3/Barley Sandbox for more information.
