The FAO/IAEA Programme’s Database of Mutation Enhanced Technologies for Agriculture (META) is an information portal of commercially or officially released mutant varieties, mutant genetic stocks, and mutation research publications. It consists of the following five sub-databases:

Mutant Variety Database (MVGS): Information about commercially or officially released mutant varieties.

Laboratory Protocols - Information, forms and protocols for genotyping and mutagenesis services and positive control kits for mutation discovery. Protocols were optimized for our laboratory.

FAO/IAEA Publications: A repository for searching and downloading all Plant Mutation Reports (PMR) and other publications produced by the Joint FAO/IAEA Programme in the field of plant breeding and genetics.
