ICGN is a worldwide network of scientists from universities, research institutes and industry within the coffee producing and coffee consuming countries.
ICGN will focus on the genetic and molecular bases of traits important for consumers, processors and producers in terms of quality and reduced economic and environmental costs.
ICGN represents an international commitment to work jointly for the development of common sets of genetic and genomic resources.
