How We Work

Members and Observers Drive Our Community of Best Practices

DivSeek Intl works with members and observers to develop and share methodologies, open-source software tools, and best practices to facilitate the generation, integration, and sharing of data and information related to plant genetic resources (PGR).

By creating a community of practice and making it possible to track and share information about PGR, DivSeek Intl aims to empower gene bank managers, breeders, researchers and farmers to better characterize, disseminate and utilize plant genetic variation for accelerated crop improvement, strategic research, and sustainable production of food and agricultural products around the world.

To help achieve its mission, DivSeek Intl has established a number of Working Groups to actively engage members and assist them in addressing issues of importance to the DivSeek Intl Community. The DivSeek Intl Working Groups are proposed and established by DivSeek Intl members and provide the basis for the development of Best Practices.
