A future DNA bank for Mediterranean and tropical plants

The ARCAD research projects, particularly the Comparative population genomics project, will generate a sizeable number of DNA samples, which will have to be produced using optimum procedures to provide high-quality genotyping and sequencing data.

The DNA bank project will build up significant capacity for DNA extraction, conservation and distribution in order to support all ARCAD activities dealing with DNA samples of Mediterranean and tropical crops.
