Plant Genetic Diversity Division

This division is responsible for the evaluation and utilization of the amount of genetic variation in population or species through the following activities: collection of germplasm, characterization, evaluation and hybridisation to produce desirable materials.

Research Areas

The research areas are:

  • Agro-morphology and molecular characterization and evaluation
  • Pre-breeding (genetic enhancement) through minimal crossing performed on selected accessions based on the agro-morphological traits and molecular analysis.
  • Development of core collection for effective distribution of the germplasm under conservation, using passport, agro-morphological and molecular data.
