Welcome to the BBSRC project web pages! We will try our best to answer queries / reply to comments etc. as quickly as we can, but other responsibilities (undergraduate teaching / postgraduate teaching / administration) may delay this. Bear with us. On a personal note, I just want to say that we have been given a fantastic opportunity by the BBSRC to make what we hope will be a substantial contribution to improving UK – and world – agriculture. I know that all of the project partners are very keen indeed to start the work!
