e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

A Software Tool for Teaching Backcross Breeding Simulation


Plant breeding programs Involve multiple steps, and their complete development cannot be experienced by students in a single academic year Tools of communication and information technologies offer a great opportunity to improve students' skills, but only a few software are available for training undergraduate student, in plant breeding programs Here we present a student friendly software tool, Retromelon, for simulating the backcross breeding method We also evaluate its suitability and performance as a learning tool This software is designed to recreate a real melon (Cucumis melo) backcross breeding program aimed at introgressing the resistance to melon vine decline from the tolerant melon cultivar Pat81 into the susceptible cultivar Piel de Sapo The software simulates the most important steps and decisions tint must be made by a plant breeder m a backcross breeding program, including the number of individuals to evaluate in each generation, evaluation of agronomic traits, and selection of individuals This software is being used by undergraduate horticulture students Our results have shown that the use of this tool in the classroom increases the motivation of the student,, and then fare, benefits the learning process This software is available upon request both in English and Spanish versions
