The base of conservation activities is knowledge on breeds and information on genetic varieties, which are endangered or could be so in the near future. This information has to be reliable and it has to be updated in meaningful intervals in order to keep track of changes in criteria relevant for the survival of the breed.
Accumulation of information in a data bank means data collection and storage in a systematic order which allows quick and easy access, to perform comparisons and retrievals for any combination of criteria.
