GCP annouces

 GCP is delighted to announce the 16 winners of its 3rd Genotyping Support Service (GSS) open call for proposals. This call was launched in October 2009 and closed in January 2010.

Further to our note of August 5th, 2010, we once more thank all the applicants for their interest and patience, whilst the GCP team was working to resolve a number of issues on the GSS strategy, and undergoing a leadership transition. We are now pleased to report that GCP's GSS strategy has been refined, and the transition in leadership has been completed.

For this 3rd call, 63 applications were received from 30 different developing countries for cassava, chickpeas, coconuts, cowpeas, groundnuts, maize, millet, Musa, Phaseolus, potatoes, rice, sorghum, sweet potato, wheat and yams.

A panel of GCP and external experts reviewed the proposals, of which 16 were selected as winners.

Please join us in congratulating these 16 finalists.
