Overcoming forage challenges in Africa: exploring sequence diversity in Napier grass to fast-track breeding projects at national level
In this project, we propose to capture the maximal range of polymorphisms by whole-genome sequencing of 500 accessions of Napier grass with the project focus on the identification of molecular markers associated with drought tolerance, crude protein content, water soluble carbohydrates, self-...
Development of new forage genetic resources and their ultilization
The knowledge generated from this work allows scientists to identify genotypes that have potential as livestock feed. It also allows them to conserve essential forage biodiversity for current and future generations as global public goods. The major focus of forage research is to characterize the...
