How can I search for a germplasm on KnowPulse?

The KnowPulse KnowledgeBase focuses on short question-based lessons to help researchers get their work done.

This tutorial is aiming to guide our pulse crop researchers through the procedure of germplasm searching. The germplasm search allows researchers to view the pedigree tool and phenotypic data of individual crosses, which can be a useful tool for their own breeding programs.

Some of the things you will learn include:
