From theory to practice in genebank operations

Do you find the Genebank Standards for Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture a little, shall we say, hard to digest? Not to worry, there are now handy practical guides for the application of the Genebank Standards. Which will hopefully make them a little easier to use.

The action steps of the genebank workflow are presented in a sequential manner and provide guidance on the complex steps and decisions required when operating a seed genebank, field genebank, or an in vitro genebank. The accompanying summary charts for the respective action steps underscore the intended use of each practical guide as a handbook for routine genebank operations.
