Whealbi project

Under the 7th Framework Program of the EU the Whealbi project (“Wheat and barley Legacy for Breeding Improvement”) was launched in 2014. One of the objectives of the project is to develop guidelines and protocols for Next Generation Valorization and Utilization of PGRFA collections.

There are some plant breeding companies involved in this project as project partners, one of which is an Italian seed company SIS, Società Italiana Sementi.
