"Such a great honor to be inducted into the Indian National Academy of Agricultural Sciences yesterday (New Delhi, 6/5/2022).
Our lab trained/collaborated with a core group of talented Indian scientists who went on to drive a plant genomics revolution in their country - beginning with rice in the late 90s/early 2000s.
Thank you India!" -Rod Wing
