This team has two objectives. One objective is to promote Genebank activities including exploration, characterization, evaluation and propagation of plant genetic resources. We also develop core collections as convenient sets of plant genetic resources. The other objective is to analyze the genetic diversity of plant genetic resources. We collect, evaluate and analyze the diversity in characters and genes to make breeding material for future use. Our target species are Vigna, Glycine, Oryza and Sorghum.
