The Triticeae Toolbox (T3) is the web portal for data generated by the Triticeae Coordinated Agricultural Project (T-CAP). The database, developed initially as The Hordeum Toolbox (THT) to hold barley data generated by the Barley CAP project (2006-2010) is being maintained as T3 barley while a sister database T3 Wheat will hold data generated for Triticum spp. T3 contains germplasm line information, pedigree, genotype and phenotypic data from breeding programs participating in the T-CAP and core germplasm collections maintained by the USDA National Small Grains Collection.   An inventory of current data including genotype data from the wheat and barley Illumina Infinium 9K chips, strategies for data acquisition and future plans for T3 will be discussed.  T3 is funded by the National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA) of the USDA.
