In order for a genebank to operate, you have to make sure that all the different elements, all the different processes, the flows of information are integrated and work together. In the genebank, you manage samples of seeds, which we call accessions. Well, managing donor relations, managing projects, managing contracts, etc., are a little bit like running the genebank.
Instead of packets of seeds, we have grants, we have projects, we have contracts, and all the information that flows between them. One of the important things that I think I brought to the genebank of the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI; http://irri.org ) and to this particular office [the DPPC] was a systematic way of doing business.
