IBPGR-CIAT Collaborative Project on a pilot in vitro active genebank uri icon


  • The overall and specific objectives of a collaborative research project between the International Board for Plant Genetic Resources (IBPGR) and CIAT are given. The overall objective is to assess and demonstrate the technical and logistic aspects of establishing and operating a pilot in vitro active genebank, according to the scientific specifications set by IBPGR and CIAT, using cassava as a model crop. The germplasm used comprises 100 clones selected from 4250 accessions of a field genebank. The data produced will aid in setting guidelines for future in vitro active genebanks. (AS)
