PERN - Pan-European Rhizosphere Network

European - Russian initiative on Banking Rhizosphere Micro-Organisms

The Pan-European Rhizosphere resources Network (PERN)

The goal of the PERN members is to constitute a common pool of micro-biodiversity exploitable for research and innovation, accessible to academic as well as industrial scientists.

PERN has been set up by the BRIO participants to create a pool of common rhizosphere related resources, including the microbial resources, the related data and also connecting experts to provide for human expertise.

It is wet up as a one-stop shop HUB focusing on biofertilisation, biocontrol and bioremediation to help scientists to cope with challenges in agriculture, forestry and environment in diffrent ecosystem and under changing climate conditions.
