AgroLD is a knowledge system that exploits the Semantic Web technology and some of the relevant standard domain ontologies, to integrate information on rice species and in this way facilitating the formulation of new scientific hypotheses. The objective of this effort is to provide the community with a platform for domain specific knowledge, capable of answering complex biological questions. The project has been developed by Institut de Biologie Computationnelle (IBC, in collaboration with the Centre de coopération International en Recherche Agronomique pour le Développement (CIRAD) and Institut de recherche pour le développement (IRD).
