A consortium of world potato (Solanum sp.) gene banks has been created to address common problems and facilitate efficient management of potato genetic resources from a global perspective. The Association of Potato Intergenebank Collaborators (APIC) was initiated by the German-Dutch (BGRC), International Potato Center (CIP), and United States (NRSP-6) potato gene banks. National collections from Argentina, Ecuador, Peru, United Kingdom, and former DDR and USSR also are participating. Progress has been made on a joint data base of germplasm identifiers and evaluation data, technology exchange, joint research, and cooperation in germplasm preservation and collecting.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
