The RDA Genebank project has been implemented as a national program in Rep. of Korea to collect, characterize, evaluate, rejuvenate, conserve and use plant, microorganism and animal genetic resources for food and agriculture since 1985. National Agrobiodivresity Center (NAC) has functioned as a central bank of the project in cooperation with other agricultural public and private sectors. This national network on genetic resources for food and agriculture currently preserves approximately 154,695 accessions of crops germplasm and wild relatives as the base collection of about 1700 species involving 26,125 accessions of clonal crops. About 100,000 accessions are conserved as active collection, which are able to distribute mainly for breeding and research purposes under the regulation of MTA between RDA Genebank and recipients worldwide. We have undertaken international collaboration with several Asian countries focusing on ex situ conservation of plant genetic resources. Research highlights on conservation and utilization of plant genetic resources are discussed.
