To work closely with CG Centers to develop open-source computational infrastructure and analysis capabilities, enabling
the implementation of genomic and marker assisted selection as part of routine breeding programs for staple crops in the developing world.


Effective deployment of genomic information in breeding programs has the potential to significantly increase genetic
gain in key crop performance traits. This can lead to staple crop varieties with improved yields and better adaption to
growing conditions in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, bringing us closer to providing a sustainable and reliable food supply.
