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 provides data to a widely accessible database of these samples to make them available for (further) research and thereby aims to contribute also to effective species conservation.

Stories of the Biological Collections of the Czech Academy of Sciences – new brochure for the public
Eight different biological collections from three institutes of Czech Academy of Sciences joined together to tell their stories. Therefore you can now find out not only what kinds of collections exist at Czech Academy of Sciences at all but also what they are good for. Listen to story about resistance to drugs that can spread through the environment in the same way as do the pathogens themselves, about cyanobacteria that can help us with the reduction of soil erosion or Alzheimer's disease or the story of the little owl that is calling for rescue...
The brochure was created in 2017 based on panel exhibition of the same name. It was supported by the program ROZE of the Strategy AV21, Czech Academy of Sciences.
