National Animal Genetic Bank (NAGB)
NAGB is focused on collecting available genomic samples from wild fauna of the Czech Republic and also data on other existing genomic samples, e.g. from finished research projects or samples stored in museums, which can come from all over the world. NAGB ensures their long-term quality preservation and maintains a widely accessible database of these samples to make them available for (further) research and thereby aims to contribute also to effective species protection.

Myslivost Hunting Magazine
Members of the Czech-Moravian Hunting Association and other hunters and their sympathizers, who often come into contact with wild fauna, were asked for cooperation on the Genetic Bank in the June issue of Czech hunting magazine Myslivost. We introduced the National Animal Genetic Bank in the article and asked for provision of a genetic sample from each hunted or found dead individual of species which is not commonly hunted. Regarding commonly hunted species, samples from three individuals per a district hunting association are asked. We have already got firs samples from the association members while we thank them for their cooperation.
