Featured: ISO

A vote for ISO certification of genebanks from Michael:

I can’t believe there is even a debate about the usefulness of genebank certification. Certification is not a costly distraction or a mere prestige thing.

And another one from Cedric:

The process leading to an official certification is an institutional exercise of the ‘good’ kind. In-house certification is maybe cheaper and more flexible/less rigid (see FB discussion), but it is not the point of this somewhat cumbersome procedure.

Add your own!
