Activated GEnebank NeTwork

Project description

Establishing an innovative gene bank network

As storehouses of seeds or vegetative tissue, gene banks are dedicated to seed conservation. They were created to preserve genetic material with the idea that they might be used in the future in breeding programmes. The EU-funded AGENT project will transform gene banks from living archives into bio-digital resource centres able to face the new technological challenges in agronomy. A consortium of 15 gene banks and four gene bank genomic centres will establish a network that will focus on barley and wheat. The project will set up a European (global) crop genomic diversity atlas, activate currently inaccessible legacy phenotypic data, and initiate a new concept of concerted accumulation of phenologic and agronomic data for individual collections of genetic resources. Phenotyping will take into consideration varied environmental data conditions.
