@ RARe
Since 2016, the RARe infrastructure brings together agronomic Biological Resource Centers (BRCs) and forms a meta-network with a plurality of expertise at the service of biodiversity, research, professional actors and society. The stakes are to enable agriculture and livestock farming to adapt and face new challenges.

RARe aims to preserve and characterize biological and genetic resources of animal, plant, microbial species and the environment, to contribute to the evolution of agricultural systems in response to global changes.

Research institutions and their partners (INRAE, CIRAD, IRD, CNRS, universities, grandes écoles) have organized themselves to preserve this diversity, both in metropolitan France and in the overseas territories. The infrastructure is organized into five pillars, distinguished by the biological nature of the resources and by the objective of the research using them: Environment, Forest, Plants, Animals and Microorganisms.

RARe is now an important mechanism that brings together a wide variety of resources:

  • 20,000 strains of microorganisms
  • 15,000 soil samples
  • 220,000 plant varieties
  • 1,000,000 species of insects and live populations of Trichogramma
  • 70,000 animals of about 20 species
  • 10,000 varieties of forest trees

Biological resource centers enrich existing collections and develop technologies to better conserve and characterize them. They allow the study of the evolution of populations and offer the possibility of introducing or reintroducing biodiversity into breeding, farming and forestry systems. The collections are enriched through research activities. These resources, known and secured, integrate catalogs, which will allow their diffusion to scientific teams or professionals.

RARe relies on a large number of researchers, engineers and technicians whose daily work you will discover in the video.
