Next Generation Cassava Breeding: Project Proposal

They also elucidated relatedness between many cultivated cassava varieties, which can help breeders maximize genetic diversity in improvement cassava roots contain 20-40 percent starch that costs 15-30 percent less to produce per hectare than starch from corn, in many parts of the world, particularly africa and southeast asia, it represents a strategic source of renewable energy—biomass from which ethanol is being produced for transportation s of the international cassava genetic map consortium (left to right): jessen bredeson, uc berkeley; kahya shuaibu, national root crops research institute (nrcri), umudike, nigeria; oluwafemi alaba, international institute of tropical agriculture (iita), ibadan, nigeria; cindy ha, formerly of uc berkeley and now at the university of colorado; jessica lyons, uc berkeley; chiedozie egesi, formerly of nrcri and now with nextgen cassava at cornell university; simon prochnik, doe jgi; ismail rabbi, iita, nigeria.
