Genomics can revolutionize breeding and research, but for this to become a reality, scientists must be allowed to focus on the research problem, and not on the technology. The CEG is enabling this possible by making the highly sophisticated equipment required for this research available to scientists.
By offering genotyping and sequencing service on cost-to-cost basis, coupled with support in data analysis and interpretation, CEG is committed to enhance adoption of genomics in breeding programmes to increase yield.
CEG’s Vision is to make it possible for agricultural breeding & research programs to fully utilize modern genomics tools in developing countries.Dr Rajeev Kumar Varshney
