Workshop âImproving the prerequisites for a European rye collectionâ, October 13-14, RadzikÃ³w, Poland
The Nordic Genetic Resource Centre and the Plant Breeding and Acclimatization Institute (IHAR) organized a workshop at IHAR (RadizkÃ³w, Poland) âImproving the prerequisites for a European rye collectionâ, October 13-14, 2011.
The goal of this workshop was to facilitate closer cooperation on rye germplasm. The maters dicussed included updating the European Secale database (ESDB) and rye descriptors. The working group from this workshop will proceed with developing standards for rye regeneration, characterization and seed storage with focus on cultivated species. During this workshop methods and criteria for listing unique rye genotypes proposed as European accessions were agreed upon and the next steps to complete this work were planned.
