Genetic Resources Gateway
The Genetic Resources Gateway is a crowd-sourced platform serving as an entry point to the landscape of forest, plant and animal genetic resources in Europe.
To be featured on the Gateway, stakeholders from organizations working on genetic resources in Europe and neighbouring countries can register and add their organization and key content (multimedia material, technical guidelines, maps, projects, databases and success stories).
The Genetic Resources Gateway is one of the key products of the GenRes Bridge project, a joint initiative of the three European networks for genetic resources, ECPGR, EUFORGEN and ERFP.
