This study was done by Mrs. Sandra Kamenya at BECA-ILRI. She used Illumina RNA-seq technology to investigate thesetranscriptome of germplasm collected from Uganda using RNA samples from different developmental stages and tissues.

Mr. Godfrey Sseremba, a PhD student of Plant Breeding at West Africa Centre for Crop Improvement (WACCI), University of Ghana is carrying out research that is focused on breeding of Solanum aethiopicum Shum group for water use efficiency and drought tolerance (DT). The study involves identification of parental material for water use efficiency (WUE) and

Mr. Fred Masika, one of the staff under the Department of Agricultural and Biological Sciences at Uganda Christian University carried out a study at the BecA-ILRI hub to contribute towards generation of molecular tools for more efficient breeding of the African eggplant (S. aethiopicum). He developed a linkage map using genotyping by sequencing. He also
