Research activities: Supporting breeding programs through increasing value and use of collections
Researchers are working to characterize diversity and identify variation in traits of interest in research and breeding to adapt to climate change, nutrition, and food security. This can be achieved through genotyping collections, improving data management and accessibility, and developing discovery-ready genetic resources.
