Genebanks

Genebanks contribute to the EVA networks as providers of material. They provide propagation material of the selected accessions of a crop within a crop-specific network. Genebanks also provide background information on accessions to facilitate selection and ensure (in cooperation with the National Focal Point) that the existing data in EURISCO is current. Furthermore, they are often more actively involved in other aspects of the network, such as multiplication of accessions, evaluation and data analysis. Some genebanks are also research institutes.

See below a list of participating genebanks.
