Date:5/15/2012

ST. LOUIS, MO, May 15, 2012The Global Cassava Partnership for the 21st Century (GCP21) will hold its second scientific conference June 18 22, 2012 at the Speke Resort Conference Centre in Kampala, Uganda. GCP21 consists of 45 member institutions working on research and development of cassava, a staple crop relied on by more than 700 million people worldwide. The ultimate goal of the partnership is to improve cassava productivity through scientific research and development. Nearly 300 leading cassava researchers and stakeholders from around the world will attend. Registration is available on line at http://www.danforthcenter.org/GCP21-II/.

The Global Cassava Partnership serves as an advocate for cassava issues and leverages research and development by facilitating dialogue among farmers, stakeholders, producers, researchers and donor agencies via scientific and technical meetings, collectively seeking smart strategies, funding opportunities, and catalyzing solutions to technical challenges such as cassava genomics.

"The greatest reward during my life time will be to bring about a significant transformation in cassava to impact on many lives that depend on the crop," said Dr. Yona Baguma, Scientist at NaCRRI, Chairman of GCP21-II.

Since it was founded in 2003, GCP21 has developed a list of technologies and research themes to focus activities and promote investment in those priority areas. In the last year, several research projects totaling more than $60 million in grants in the areas of cassava genomics, genetic engineering, biofortification, genetics and biology have been initiated and will be reported on during the five day program.

Participants will exchange knowledge and experiences in the areas of socio-economics, biodiversity and genetic resources, post-harvest, starch modification, nutrition, genomics, molecular genetic markers and gene discovery, tissue c
