Objectives:

  • Characterization and application of crop plant genetic resources for plant breeding,
  • Investigation of genetic parameters of economically important traits of agricultural plants,
  • Improvement of plant breeding methods by application of molecular and bioinformatic techniques,
  • Monitoring of pathogens for the purposes of resistance breeding
  • Development of initial materials (pre-breeding) for breeding of cereals.

THE AGROBANK PROJECT: „Development of bioinformatic management system of national crop plant genetic resources and development of social and economic resources of Poland by the protection and use of these means in the process of agricultural advisory services”, Date of commencement of works: 01/12/2018, ending: 30/11/2021.

The AGROBANK project is financed by the National Center for Research and Development (NCBiR) as part of the contest for open projects within the frame of the strategic program of scientific research and development "SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OF POLAND IN THE CONDITIONS OF GLOBALIZING MARKETS" - GOSPOSTRATEG.

 Project R&D (scientific) coordinator: Prof. dr hab. Jerzy H. Czembor

There are 6 tasks conducted in SPBS - Phase A: 1, 2, 4; Phase B: 6, 7, 8.

Phase A 1-18 mos.

Task 1.Conducting basic research on the characterization and assessment of genetic resources of crop plants that are crucial for Polish agriculture and food production.

Task 2.Conducting applied research regarding natural conditions important from the point of view of useful plants that are of key importance for Polish agriculture and food production.

Task 4.Conducting applied research on the dependence of knowledge collected during the implementations of tasks 1, 2 and 3 in phase A, in order to develop a comprehensive diagnosis of problems, to develop a strategy in order to achieve the optimal state of operations and to develop specific solutions and activities in the proposed directions - i.e. development of detailed assumptions of the bioinformatic functioning of the management system of national genetic resources of crop plants that are of key importance for Polish agriculture and food production.

Phase B -19-36 mos.

Task 6.Organizing domestic and foreign study visits allowing to collect information on the functioning of good practices.

Task 7.Pilot/implementation of the solutions resulting from phase A in practice - the creation of an IT system and its launch.

Task 8.Conducting social campaigns and organizing media events intended to convince the public to the proposed solutions.
