Highly Interactive Data Analysis Platform

HIDAP supports clonal crop breeders at the International Potato Center (CIP). HIDAP stands for Highly Interactive Data Analysis Platform. It is part of on-going in-house efforts to unify best practices which practices include data collection, data quality and data analysis in clonal crop breeding. HIDAP builds on the former in-house tools DataCollector (DC) and CloneSelector (CS). These tools supported potato and sweetpotato breeding, respectively. HIDAP improves on prior features like data quality checks. It adds new features to support open access. New features include linkage with corporate and local databases such as CIP-BioMart and Sweetpotato-base, the latter via the Breeding API (BrAPI). HIDAP is part of The Global Trial Data Management System suite of tools at CIP.

More about

HIDAP builds on the statistical platform R. This includes the R shiny tools, the knitr package, the agricolae package, and more than 100 other R packages. HIDAP re-uses also the R code that was used in both DC and CS. The R shiny package enables interactive web pages that are usable online and offline. The knitr package enables the creation of reproducible reports and the agricolae package supports the design of field experiments and their analysis.

Key features of HIDAP include web based user interfaces.

  • - to support data capture.
  • - the creation of field books.
  • - to access data from breeding databases (CIP-BioMart & Sweetpotatobase).
  • - to check data quality.
  • - to analyze single and multi-environment data.
  • - to calculate selection indices.
  • - to create repeatable reports.

Novel features.

  • - to manage materials of breeding families and clones.
  • - to connect with pedigree and other databases at CIP.
  • - to use interactive graphs for data exploration.

We developed HIDAP with the support of GT4SP, RTB, USAID and SASHA projects.
