Description

Improving crops requires the introduction of new traits. Thousands of beneficial traits reside in wild relatives of crop species, but reproductive barriers between species makes accessing these traits extremely challenging. By identifying factors limiting access to wild traits, the project will unlock the full diversity of wild germplasm for plant breeders, resulting in faster crop improvement.
