Abstract

Abstract

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.
