Cannabis Genomic Research Initiative

The Cannabis Genomic Research Initiative intends to begin with three primary aims: 1. create an ultra-high density genetic map of cannabis, 2. determine the history, phylogeny, phylogeography of cannabis, and 3. identify the modern hybrid origins of cannabis cultivars.  This initiative hopes that these projects will revolutionize cannabis breeding by bringing tools and resources up to level.  They also hope that increased knowledge about cannabis breeding can help breeders better understand the process.  Visit the initiative’s website here to learn more.
