Biosystematics

Our work revolves around comprehending the ancestral lineages among plant species to effectively exploit existing gene families and recombination options for the efficient improvement of lesser-known crop species.  This endeavor requires a solid understanding of big data science fundamentals and effective management. We employ computer science methodologies to unravel the genetic basis of complex traits […]

Omics, biotechnology and plant breeding

This represents one of the core areas of our research at GBioS focusing on the development of higher-yielding varieties adapted to specific climates and soils for both major and opportunity crops. We exploit the biological mechanisms for plant growth and development to improve crops production. We use classical and modern breeding tools to resolve domestication […]

Conservation and use of plant genetic resources for enhancing agribusiness

Plant genetic resources (PGR) play a crucial role in supporting the livelihoods of humanity. Our research focuses on the sustainable utilization and conservation of these resources, with a primary emphasis on various crops such as fruits (e.g. pineapple, bananas, plantain, sisrè berry, black plum); vegetables (e.g. cleome, egusi gourd, bitter gourd, amaranth); cereals (e.g. fonio, […]
