Abstract: It is an honor to address this group on a topic that represents one of the CGIAR' s greatest aspirations, which is to bring the newest and best scientific insights to bear on some of the hardest realities that human beings have to face: hunger, poverty, and environmental decline. A large range of work in new areas-marker-assisted selection, functional genomics, and others-is undertaken in the Centers, too much to summarize in a short presentation. I hope you will forgive me if I choose to highlight a few research areas rather than to give an exhaustive review of all of them. I will focus on new breeding methodologies, wide hybridization, gene/QTL mapping, functional genomics, transformation technology, and geographic information systems (GIS).
