Application of modern tools and strategies, such as Focused Identification of Germplasm Strategy, effective gene introgression methods, and genomics, are essential in improving genetic resource utilization and improving breeding efficiency.
Have you ever wondered why some people turn every piece of pottery over and look at the bottom?
Wheat genetic resources have played a significant role in wheat improvement by contributing important sources of genes for yield potential, broad adaptation, short plant height, improved grain quality, and resistance/tolerance to major abiotic and biotic stresses.

So, just in the process of picking up the piece, the weight is registering in my mind.
