It will include transgenic technology, bioinformatics and genomics capabilities, cell biology units, to mention a few. Molecular markers will be a vital part of this cluster of technologies providing background recovery to enhance backcrossing projects, molecular mapping of important traits and molecular breeding approaches that stabilize genes of interest in early generations and positive linkage block building for maximizing heterosis. Gene identification, sequencing and development is another area of activity. All these technologies will be supported by the latest glasshouse and controlled environment facilities plus associated laboratory functions. These facilities will empower the breeders to accelerate the genetic gain for their crops of reference - this is critically important to meet the genetic need of farmers as well as nutritional needs of the growing populations plus build and improve our competitive position regarding other competing companies or suppliers of genetics to the agri industry.
