Kiwi Fruit Branch of Chinese Society for Horticultural Sciences Plant Science Journal
The actinidia germplasm repository and breeding center at Wuhan Botanical Garden of Chinese Academy of Sciences has carried out introduction, collection and protection of domestic and international actinidia genetic resources since 1980. The center, the largest germplasm repository for gathering and preserving actinidia genetic resources at home and abroad, has gathered and preserved 57 (total 800 species of resource materials, 57 out of 66 actinidia species and 60 domestic and international commercial varieties. Since the 90s of the last century, the center has established optimized sampling strategies based on general international standard of plant germplasm collection and protection through comprehensive evaluation of genetic diversity at morphology, cellular, and molecular levels in order to ensure genetic integrity of the gathered and protected germplams. The center initially implemented the protection program of conserving fifteen female plants and five staminiferous plants for each species based on above protection strategy. The center has built the actinida ex-situ conservation germplasm repository with the largest coverage rate and the richest genetic diversity in the world.
