This facility at Singapore Botanic Gardens was extensively upgraded to respect the 100-year-old building’s architectural legacy while housing state-of-the-art laboratories dedicated to seed cleaning, seed preservation, germination, cryogenic storage and research. It also includes a public space and cold and dry room with strict temperature and humidity regimes to enable long-term seed storage of possibly some of the world’s most valuable plant species.
