Curator Tool Installation
The Curator Tool is the GRIN-Global client application used by a genebank's staff to access the GG database; it is not the database.
Installing the Curator Tool involves several steps that must be followed closely. Please download the Installation Guide and closely follow the directions.
Upgrading from 32-bit CT Versions
Recent Curator Tool (CT) versions have been 64-bit. However, if you are upgrading from a CT whose version is 220.127.116.11 or older, you should completely uninstall it using Windows. (If you are unsure of the current CT version, start up the CT – the version is displayed in the CT’s title bar.)
