The Gene Bank of the Agricultural Institute of Slovenia participates and operates together with three other gene banks within the SRGB, namely the Department of Agronomy of the Biotechnical Faculty of the University of Ljubljana, the Slovenian Institute for Hop Research and Brewing in Žalec and the Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences of the University of Maribor. Lately, the Bank has also strengthened cooperation with non-governmental organisations. At the international level, the bank among other things also participates in the work of ECPGR FA (European Cooperative Programme for Plant Genetic Resources used for Food and Agriculture), which strives at the European and regional level to preserve genetic resources of crops in the long term and to encourage their further use.
