Noncryogenic, Long-Term Germplasm Storage
Germplasm conservation is an important goal in the preservation of genetic diversity. Conventional methods, such as field and seed conservation, are used for most crops, although nonconventional methods, such as tissue culture and cryopreservation, have been used to support those methods.
