Since its beginning, the University of California has been actively involved, directly or indirectly, in traditional plant breeding programs, including germplasm collection and evaluation, development of genetic stocks for use in plant breeding programs, development of finished varieties, new crop development, and training of plant breeders. Such plant breeding is actually a form of genetic engineering. It involves management of genes and their carriers, the chromosomes.
