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.

Newspaper Jihlavské listy: The Genetic Bank will be established in the Vysočina Region
As Jihlavské listy carefully monitors developments in its region, it informed about the BIOM project, including laying the foundation of national collection of wild vertebrate genetic samples, already in December 2014.
