Ongoing Projects

  1. Genome sequencing: Eight genomes have been sequenced and published
    1. Apple-Ring Acacia (Faidherbia albida)
    2. Bambara Groundnut (Vigna subterranea)
    3. Hyacinth Bean (Lablab purpureus)
    4. Marula (Sclerocarya birrea)
    5. Horseradish Tree (Moringa oleifera)
    6. Jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus)
    7. Breadfruit (Artocarpus altilis)
    8. African eggplant (Solanum aethiopicum)
    9. Shea tree (Kerite) (Vitellaria paradoxa)
    10. Water yam (Dioscorea alata)
      Apart from these, two more genomes, of finger millet (Elusine coracana),  cleome (Gyndandropsis gynandra), are being assembled and will soon be published.
  2. Sequencing of the following species is being conducted by AOCC partners
