CABI Bioservices, is part of an intergovernmental organisation established by treaty dedicated to improving human welfare through the application of scientific knowledge in support of sustainable development world-wide, with emphasis on agriculture, forestry, human health and conservation of natural resources, and with particular attention to the needs of developing countries. The CABI Genetic Resources Collection (GRC) is tasked with the collection of organisms to provide a resource for the scientific programmes of CABI. The GRC accesses filamentous fungi and yeasts, plant pathogenic bacteria, nematodes and biocontrol agents belonging to these groups. As well as live material the GRC is backed by over 370 000 dried specimens. The National Collection of Wood Rotting Fungi, NCWRF, has recently been integrated into the GRC.
