plant-dna-web-squareAs always, at this global event last month, GCP hosted a side event, graced by a panel of eminent scientists and excellent speakers.

This workshop on January 14 2013 highlighted selected key GCP projects, with some of our research partners in attendance. Altogether, there were about 150 participants.

“It was amazing to see the excellent progress on these projects,” says Rajeev Varshney, Leader of GCP's Comparative and Applied Genomics Theme. He adds, “On the one hand, there was the ongoing basic gene discovery work for phosphorus uptake efficiency in maize and sorghum. On the other hand, QTL deployment was demonstrated in chickpeas.”

GCP would like to thank all who attended the event.
