Technology has made is possible to store this DNA in banks as an insurance policy against the loss of crop diversity. DNA banks are now considered a means of complimentary conservation. DNA storage has become particularly useful for those species that cannot be conserved in traditional seed, field genebanks, or because of a high risk in the area (Crop Genebank Knowledge Base, 2011).
