CGN Operational Genebank Manual for Plant Genetic Resources

The Centre for Genetic Resources, the Netherlands (CGN) aims to be transparent about our operational genebank procedures. In the framework of the ECPGR initiative AEGIS (A European Genebank Integrated System), CGN's Operational Genebank Manual has been made available on this page.

The manual gives an overview of germplasm acquisition and accessioning (section 1), ensuring security (section 2), germplasm maintenance (section 3), and providing information (section 4).

The template for these genebank manuals was provided by AEGIS. Manuals for associate members' genebanks are available on the AEGIS page Genebank Manuals.
