The Genetic Resources Gateway – a crowd-sourced platform to guide through the landscape of forest, plant and animal genetic resources in Europe - is online! This 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.
Stakeholders from organisations working on genetic resources in Europe and in the neighboring countries are invited to register and add their organisation and key content (multimedia material, technical guidelines, maps, projects, databases and success stories) to be featured on the Gateway.
Genetic Resources is an open access peer-reviewed journal serving the community of practitioners and stakeholders working with plant, animal and forest genetic resources.
