CIRAD pineapple genebank was established in Martinique in 1985 and now rise above 600 accessions. Considerable data - origin, botanical description, agronomic behaviour - have been collected. In year 2000, the development of a user-friendly database was undertaken. Within the database, each accession is documented according to the IPGRI plant descriptors: Passport, Characterization, Evaluation and Management descriptors. In addition, a set of indicators gives information about data reliability and representativeness. The database is intended for the use of researchers in charge of the genebank and for genetic resources endusers working in genetics, breeding, development or training. Through the user interface, curators have access to data input and management frames. End users can consult the database through several pre-set forms: rough or extended list of germplasm, accession data sheets illustrated with photographs. Any other kind of queries can be developed with Microsoft Access software. The development of standardized data frames allows information exchange with other databases.
