Call for interest: Development trait prioritization as part of a sub-Saharan African crop variety replacement strategy

The CGIAR Excellence in Breeding Platform (EiB) is looking to provide matching funding (up to US$ 35,000) for two projects with AbacusBio to characterize the users of new crop varieties and identify a value-weighted set of traits to be included as breeding targets in a product profile system.

The winning CGIAR crop breeding program will work directly with AbacusBio with EiB support to deliver on the projects.

This project represents an opportunity for CGIAR members of EiB to take a leap forward in the definition of client-focused variety replacement.

For more details on the project and how to apply, please see the attached project proposal. Applications will be received January through February.
