Genetic Management

The management of a biodiversity germplasm bank should be based upon knowledge of the genetics of the population being resourced. Planned utilization can then be arranged to ensure the least inbreeding and preserve the genetic diversity of the population.[5] For this approach, a skin or blood sample should be stored for future analysis of novel genetic markers. For conservation of breeds, the

Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has been formulating a global strategy for domestic animal genetic management including the use of germplasm banking.[6]
