The rapid destruction of the forests requires that a major effort be made
to preserve seeds, plants, insects and also the DNA and RNA from the many
different species. Although there are many movements by many different
groups PROJECT GREEN GENE provides a unique approach in the preservation
of information which can be useful to improving crops and medicinal
The expertise of people involved in this project includes plant
scientists, computer scientists, molecular biologists, protein chemists,
and supportive staff for the preservation of genetic information of
Please respond if you are interested in providing methods or would like
