Molecular Breeding marks GCP Toolkit in prominent article

Wednesday, 10 November 2010 18:00



GCP’s Molecular Marker Toolkit has been documented in an article in leading specialist journal, 'Molecular Breeding'. The article, entitled “The GCP molecular marker toolkit, an instrument for use in breeding food security crops”, is authored by Veerle Van Damme, Humberto Gomez Paniagua and Carmen de Vicente, the GCP scientists who developed the toolkit. Both the abstract and full paper are open access and are therefore publicly available online.

The GCP Molecular Marker Toolkit is a free online tool that aims to promote the adoption of molecular approaches in breeding activities by allowing rapid access to currently available and validated molecular markers. It aims to close the knowledge gap between developing- and developed-countries, and marks an important step towards supporting the adoption of modern agricultural technologies for the benefit of the poor in developing countries.
