Answer

Germplasm conservation at liquid nitrogen temperature is called cryopreservation. It is an example of Ex-situ conservation. Ex-situ conservation is done by preserving the components of biological diversity outside their natural habitats. It is done by conserving genetic resources, as well as wild and cultivated or species. Other examples include gene banks, microbial cultures, etc.
