Rapeseed-mustard crops in India comprise traditionally grown indigenous species, namely toria (Brassica campestris L. var. toria), brown sarson (Brassica campestris L. var. brown sarson), yellow sarson (Brassica campestris L. var. yellow sarson), Indian mustard [Brassica juncea (L.) Czernj & Cosson], black mustard (Brassica nigra) and taramira (Eruca sativa/vesicaria Mill.), which have been grown since about 3,500 BC along with non-traditional species like gobhi sarson (Brassica napus L.) and Ethiopian mustard or karan rai (Brassica carinata A. Braun).
In India rapeseed-mustard oil is an essential dietary component, therefore quality improvement of oil and seed meal is a challenging task for researchers. Information on the nutritional and anti-nutritional make-up of rapeseed-mustard oil and seed meal would be quite useful for the researchers especially breeders in the quality improvement programme. Biochemical Characteristics Database of Rapeseed-Mustard will empower in selection of desired genotype for certain traits. The database contain the information on 14 important biochemical characters such as Oil Content , Protein ,Glucosinolate, Phenol ,Fiber, Sfa, Oleic, Linoleic, Linolenic, Eicosenoic, Erucic, MUFA, PUFA and ω6/ω3.
BCDRMS offers Web interface to submit and Search data in the database. The database presently comprise 200 record includes germplasm accessions, advance breeding lines and notified varieties of Rapeseed-Mustard crop. The BCDRMS offers Web interface to submit and to Search data in the database has been developed using Open Source Technology LAMP.
