BIMS can be accessed via the "Tools" menu (Fig. 1A) and then selecting "BIMS", or from the Manage Breeding link in the Tools Quick Start area (Fig. 1B) of the home page. The BIMS interface will then open. Public data is available for all users of CSFL without requiring an account. Users can download public data from BIMS without an account, but will need a CSFL user account to save search results within the website. Access to private breeding data also requires users to log in with their CSFL user account. To create a breeding program, users must first create a CSFL account and contact using the contact form for breeder privilege.
