A focus on West Africa

A paper just out on the domestication of pearl millet gives me the chance to acknowledge the terrific amount of work on domestication of West African crops going on in Yves Vigouroux‘s lab.

  1. Excellent news. One supposes now with the work by Barnaud et al. 2017 that we can now look forward to an enhanced fonio folio.

  2. Thanks Luigi. Yes indeed, Yves and colleagues are doing great work. After working with them on pearl millet domestication we from ICRISAT are working with them on domestication of chickpea though not in Western Africa but in Fertile Crescent !
