WHO WE ARE

We are a team of developers, molecular breeders, statisticians, bioinformaticists and breeders with a rich experience in managing data and applying genomic technologies to improve breeding. We are the first large-scale public-sector effort with the goal to systematically apply high-density genotypic information to the breeding of staple crops in the developing world. Initially the focus is on rice, wheat, maize, sorghum and chickpea in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. The genomic data management systems will include databases, imputation systems, and decision support tools for plant breeders.

OUR MISSION

To build open-source genomic data management and analysis tools to enable breeders to implement genomic and marker-assisted selection as part of their routine breeding programs.

OUR VISION

To transform breeding by connecting diverse data with precision breeding tools to advance yields and adaptation to local growing conditions, bringing global communities closer to a sustainable, reliable food supply.
