BREAD - Genome Enabled Platforms for Yam

Yam is a major source of dietary starch for smallholder farm families in many tropical and subtropical countries. Despite its global importance, use of modern genomics tools that can facilitate our fundamental understanding of how to improve the productivity and nutritional quality of the crop has lagged behind that of other major crops. The overall goal of this proposed project, therefore, is to establish genomeenabled platforms for yam.
