AWARD - Estimation of Gene Diversities for Postharvest Physiological Deterioration in Cassava using SSR Markers

Cassava has gained global popularity for its combined, food, feed, fibre, and bio-fuel traits. However, for this gain to become a long term reality, postharvest physiological deterioration (PPD) of cassava roots must be solved. PPD reduces income generation in cassava at all levels and it is the most devastating problem of cassava. Scientific efforts have been initiated worldwide to minimize lost to PPP. As part of these efforts, PPD was (...)

Amélioration de la qualité du jus d’ananas du Rwanda (RWANDAJUICE)

AWARD - Improvment of pineapple juice microbial quality in Rwanda.

Pineapple fruit is a major horticulture crop in Rwanda. Recently, the government of Rwanda has put much effort into the cultivation of pineapple fruits. This because the fruit can be grown on all agro ecological zones of Rwanda and can resist to many fruit diseases. Thus, the increase in its production targets the export market of the pineapple fruit and its products and thus the improvement of the country’s economy. To respond to the (...)

AWARD : Evaluation de la qualité de l’attiéké par couplage de l’analyse sensorielle et de méthodes instrumentales de mesure.

Hosting of a Fellow Award (Catherine Ebah) in order to contribute to the inventory of the variability of the quality of attiéké produced in the 4 or 5 main production areas of Côte d’Ivoire on the basis of the quality assessment methodology previously developed. This project has 3 specific objectives: (i) To improve the methodology for assessing the quality of attiéké through the combined use of sensory and instrumental methods (ii) To study the (...)

QUANTITATIVE TRAIT LOCI FOR RESISTANCE TO SPOTTED AND AFRICAN MAIZE STEM BORERS IN A TROPICAL MAIZE POPULATION

AWARD – Etude du déterminisme génétique de la résistance au Stem borer africain du mais

The need for durable resistance for maize stem borer resistance in the sub-Saharan Africa remains great. Stem borer resistance is quantitatively inherited and progress in breeding for resistance through conventional methods has been slow. The mapping of the quantitative trait loci (QTL) associated with stem borer resistance would be an important step towards use of marker assisted breeding (MAB) for this polygenic trait. The objective of (...)

PALM-A-GOV

Bamenda Raphia PALM management and GOVernance Non Timber Forest Product resource management and governance in the societies of the western highlands of Cameroon:the case of the iconic Bamenda Raphia palm.

Non-timber forest products (NTFPs) play a central role in the tropics - They also play vital roles in low-income food-deficit countries such as Cameroon (Africa). The RAPHIA project will use interdisciplinary and integrated approaches to describe, characterize and model the economic importance and future trends of Raphia species in Cameroon.

Rubber-Redox

Biochemical, near-infra red spectroscopy and gene expression analyses of reactive oxygen species-scavenging systems in latex of Hevea brasiliensis.

Natural rubber production and industry have an important environmental and socio-economic role in South East Asian countries. Hevea brasiliensis is the main source of the renewable natural rubber (NR). This latter is synthesized in latex cells. Climate change is expected to dramatically affect NR production by enhancing the occurrence of a physiological syndrome, called Tapping Panel Dryness (TPD), affecting latex production. Mechanisms of (...)
