2007 Annual Research Meeting of the Generation Challenge Programme
For this meeting, it is expected that over 180 scientists from around the world will come together to present, discuss and plan activities of the Generation Challenge Programme (GCP). Participation is by invitation only although there are some limited places for others who would like to attend and they can request an invitation. The GCP is one of the Challenge Programmes approved by the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), and it "uses molecular biology, genetics, comparative and functional genomics, molecular breeding, physiology and bioinformatics to explore crop diversity for genes of interest and develop a new generation of crops that better withstand the agricultural constraints that more and more resource-poor farmers face".
