Surbhi Monogram1

May 2019 Monogram Annual Network Meeting

We really enjoyed hosting this years Monogram here at Nottingham, where Surbhi Grewal presented her poster on "The rapid identification of homozygosity and site of wild relative introgressions in wheat through chromosome-specific KASP™ genotyping assays". Great job done by the organising committee and looking forward to Dundee next year!
