Germplasm refers to the hereditary material transmitted to the offspring through the germ is the total content of genes. It serves as the raw material for the breeder to develop different crops.. The main objective of germplasm collection is preservation of genetic diversity if a particular plant or genetic stock for its use in the future. Characterization and evaluation data in pre-breeding Core collections. •Serves as an entry point to the whole collection –and improves the access of the plant breeder, research geneticists and other users to the germplasm collection. •As a representative sample of the alleles from the entire collection,File Size: KB.

public or private, large or small, or various combinations of these. When several organization are involved in germplasm management, the centralized coordination of information and documentation of the holdings in various collections is desirable. Systematic characterization and evaluation is necessary to facilitate effective utilization of available genetic resources in crop breeding programs and for efficient management of germplasm. Since the s, a large number of chickpea germplasm accessions have been characterized and evaluated, in batches, for morphological and agronomic traits Author: Rahul Chandora, Gayacharan, Neelam Shekhawat, Nikhil Malhotra.

Core collections (10% of entire collection) and mini-core collections (10% of the core or 1% of entire collection) have been developed to enhance the use of germplasm in breeding programs. Core and mini-core collections have been used to identify genetically diverse trait-specific germplasm with resistance to abiotic and biotic stresses and for. A germplasm management system enables to store different types of data which are crucial to define the nature of the genotype material. It can be phenotypic data (traits, yield, precocity), genotypic data (species, pedigree, parentage, material type, generation), or miscellaneous data .

An appropriate conservation strategy for a particular plant gene pool requires a holistic approach, combining the different ex situ and in situ. This chapter presents the new biotechnological possibilities for improving ex situ conservation of plant biodiversity in genebanks and botanical gardens.

Handbooks for Genebanks, no. 6, Rome, pp. Germplasm collections play a significant role among strategies for conservation of diversity. It is common to select a core collection to represent the genetic diversity of a germplasm collection, in order to minimize the cost of conservation, while ensuring the maximization of genetic variation.

Gene banks are a type of biorepository which preserve genetic plants, this is done by in vitro storage, freezing cuttings from the plant, or stocking the seeds (e.g. in a seedbank).For animals, this is done by the freezing of sperm and eggs in zoological freezers until further need.

With corals, fragments are taken and stored in water tanks under controlled conditions.Conservation programs must be justified by their effective use. To ensure active use of germplasm, seed/plant/tissue materials and full information on all accessions should be freely and readily available to a broad segment of scientists and growers.
