Regional Plant Resource Centre was entrenched in 1985 as a recreational garden and with an aim to supply a green lung for the colonist of Bhubaneswar – the capital city of Orissa. Steadily it became a dynamic and vibrant research organization of the government with attention on the conservation of plant biodiversity. Over the year, it’s made significant contributions within the field of ex situ and in place conservation and assessment of genetic diversity of varied groups of plants and its related aspects. With strengthening of scientific manpower and laboratory facilities, it expanded its areas of research which witnessed large outputs in terms of study of genetic assessment of plant groups through cyto-taxonomic and molecular techniques.
