Correspondence, meeting agendas, minutes, notes, project files, and
photographs and slides produced by the UC Genetic Resources Conservation Program.
The Genetic Resources Conservation program was established in 1985 as a University of California Statewide Program of the
Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, through a special budget intitiative by the Division in response to request
from the state of California. The Program was supported by a baseline budget from the Division and various extramural funds.
The Program was concerned with California's biological diversity and its conservation in the broadest sense: onsite and
offsite conservation of the native flora and fauna, collections of germplasm amassed for agricultural, medicinal, and
industrial uses, and collections of genetics stocks, tissues, cells, and DNA developed for teaching and research purposes.
The Program was closed by the Division effective June 30, 2008.
