Question 1: Is genomics leading the future of breeding, or are breeders still leading the way but integrating genomics as another tool?
Question 2: Should ‘research for development’ organizations like the CGIAR centers, invest more into high end research or into applying the tools available?
Question 4: How many more years do we need to wait to see results from genomics research, in the farmer’s field and on a large scale (within 5 years; 5-10 years; more than 10 years)?
Question 3: If you had $100 to spend, how much would you put into genomics and how much into conventional breeding? Why?
