The Czech National Programme on Conservation and Utilization of Microbial Genetic Resources Important for Agriculture

Animal Pathogenic Microorganisms Phytopathogenic Microorganisms Olomouc Hop Pathogens Industrially Utilizable Microorganisms Dairy Microorganisms
Brewery Microorganisms Phytopathogenic Viruses Fruit Trees and Small Fruit Viruses Potato Viruses Ornamental Plant Viruses Phytopathogenic Bacteria
Rhizobia Rusts and Powdery Mildew Fungi CCF Phytopathogenic Fungi CRI Phytopathogenic Oomycetes Edible and Medicinal macromycetes
Basidiomycetes Invertebrate Crop Pests and their Natural Enemies Stored-Product Pests, Mites and Fungi Food Technologies
Dairy and Bakery Contaminants Clavicipitaceae

  The aim:
• conservation of genetic resources of microorganisms ex situ in collections, safe maintaining of the genetic resources and their biodiversity
• record keeping and documentation of genetic resources, their evaluation on molecular level and possibility of utilization for food and agriculture,
• enhancing the international cooperation, exchange of genetic resources

The programme consists of network of twenty three collections, specialized on either harmfull organisms of animals (viruses and bacteria useful for veterinary practice) and agriculture crops (viruses, bacteria, phytoplasmas, rusts, powdery mildews, oomycetes, basidiomycetes and other fungi, insects, nematodes and mites) or utilizable microorganisms like dairy microorganisms, brewery yeasts and rhizobia.
