Plant Genetic Resources and Genebank Management

Plant Genetic Resources and Genebank Management Training Module (3.8 MB)

This training module aims to train genebank curators and genetic resource professionals in good practices for effective ex situ conservation and genetic diversity held in genebanks. It was developed for a face-to-face short course on Genebank Management held at RDA Korea in 2009 and 2010. It includes lecture materials and pratical hands-on lab excercises.

In particular it aims to:
