ICRISAT Happenings 1832-3, 13 December 2019
Partnerships are key to deliver on ICRISAT’s mission of ‘Science of Discovery to Science of Delivery’. To discuss several of ICRISAT’s ongoing collaborative programs including CINTRIN, TIGR2ESS, MillNET_i, Dr Rajeev Gupta, Principal Scientist and Theme Leader, Genomics and Trait Discovery, ICRISAT, visited the University of Cambridge (UCAM), UK. He delivered a lecture at the Department of Plant Sciences about ‘Engineering N-storage capacity of plants to improve drought tolerance’, a theme relevant to climate change and food security.
