Berries in Russia

Bioversity posted a story of the project we worked on with the Vavilov Research Institute, which I wrote about earlier. I think this quote says it all from my perspective:

Bioversity scientist, Pablo Eyzaguirre, speaking of the importance of prioritizing conservation said: “Genebanks have a role to play in improved nutrition as conservation and nutrition support each other. The value of collections, such as the one at the VIR, is not just crops that are significant economically but also those that are culturally and nutritionally important.”
