    Frozen Assets. Advances in the science of cryobanking animal gametes.

    Advances in the science of ‘cryobanking’ animal gametes are helping restore endangered populations and preserve biodiversity, writes Professor William V Holt in a recent edition of The Biologist, the Royal Society of Biology’s Magazine. In the late 1940s a young postdoc called Chris Polge, working at the MRC laboratories in north London, made the fortuitous but accidental discovery that mammalian
