Biography/Administrative History

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.
