Hi Taghrid,I am now staying in Auckland, NZ for 2-3 months. The grapevines here are just beginning to sprout.I am hoping to do some collaborative work on taro (qolqas) DNA with the Alan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology and Evolution, at Massey University.I recently joined a discussion group on Crop Wild Relatives (CWR). Some of the discussion can be seen here: http://agro.biodiver.se/2009/09/conservation-for-a-new-era-highlights-crop-wild-relatives/ Best regards, P.
