Back-up base collections

Work with curators

Interact internationally

Svalbard, Mexico repartiation, CG centers

Black box collections

Vavilov

Facilitate collections/exchange

PGRPP
collaborate with sites
Facilitate back-up of collections

Requires curator support

Sweet potato

Short-term back-up of TC

Griffin sends cultures

Long-term back of TC

Fort Collins does cryo work

Pear

Research collaboration

Dormant bud technology

Collaborate with sites
ncgrp roles with cgcs
Cross cutting across CGCs

Let me know if you think I have a place at yours

Interaction with CGCs helps us aid and facilitate recommendations

One step removed from crop curator but can facilitate

Represent “system” on curatorial level

NPGS success = key to NCGRP success
