What we do

The Excellence in Breeding Platform draws from innovations in the public and private sector to provide access to cutting-edge tools, services and best practices, training and practical advice for breeding programs targeting the developing world. Starting from a standard measure of breeding program excellence, members of the platform are be supported to optimize their breeding schemes through the incorporation of genotyping and sequencing, phenotyping and bioinformatics tools and services. The knowledge accumulated by these five Modules is shared publicly through an online Toolbox.
