According to its tradition the primary task of the Research Centre for Farm Animal Gene Conservation in Gödöllő is the in vivo maintenance of Hungarian indigenous poultry breeds in nucleus populations. Since 2010 this activity has been completed with the in vivo conservation of indigenous mammalian species as well.
The electronic version of the Hungarian Simmental memory game on native Hungarian domestic animal breeds has been completed. It can be downloaded for free.
The Research Center for Farm Animal Gene Conservaion has won the accreditation from the National Innovation Office
On July 28, 2014 the National Innovation Office granted the Research Centre for Farm Animal Gene Conservation with the accreditation to host researchers from third countries, for a period of five years. This will speed up the cooperation with non-EU researchers considerably, and make mutual research projects more successful.
