played a role on culture collection of all plant pathogenic
microorganisms since 1972. Most of these cultuers have

In 1999, some of these cultures and data were reorganized
including new isolates from natural hosts or habitats
within the country to meet standard system of management.

research projects, education and for sustainable use
in the future.
