An infrastructure to comprehensively publish plant research data. PGP covers in particular cross-domain datasets that are not being published in central repositories because of its volume or unsupported data scope, like image collections from plant phenotyping and microscopy, unfinished genomes, genotyping data, visualizations of morphological plant models, data from mass spectrometry as well as software and documents. After an internal review process, data are published as citable digital object identifiers and a core set of technical metadata is registered at DataCite. The repository uses e!DAL as software infrastructure and a Hierarchical Storage Management System as data archival backend.
