Collaboration with the N.I. Vavilov Institute for food industry, St. Petersburg.

NordGen continues cooperation with the Russian national genebank, The N.I. Vavilov Institute of Plant Industry ( VIR ). The VIR preserves a lot of plant genetic resources that are very relevant for the Nordic region, including traditional landraces of all crop groups that were collected in the Nordic region prior to the existence of a Nordic genebank. NordGen hosts a workshop at Alnarp in April 2011 that brings curators and research scientists of the VIR and NordGen together for developing a strategy for enhancing the utilization of plant genetic resources by joining forces in characterization and evaluation of material.
