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.

Animal Genetic Bank for Species Conservation II Seminar
The second educational seminar on conservation genetics and the importance of genetic biobanking for research and nature conservation was held from 25 to 26 June 2015 at the Mohelský Mill Field Station. Participants were, again, zoologists from museums and professionals from ecological companies and, newly, professionals employed at the Ministry of the Environment, the Nature Conservation Agency and the regional authorities. Organizers thank participants for their time spent for genetic bank, many valuable suggestions and their nice company. We are looking forward to further cooperation.
