Abstract

Plant Molecular Biology 56: v–x, 2004. 2004 Kluwer Academic Publishers. Printed in the Netherlands. Editorial together regularly and needed to communicate about the use of these new technologies for an orphan crop such as cassava. The attendees pres- ent at that meeting decided to organize themselves in a network dedicated to the biotechnology of cassava named: Cassava Biotechnology Network, or CBN in short. After the Cali meeting, a steering committee was formed and proposals were gener- ated and sent to international donors. In 1990, DGIS from The Netherlands became interested in CBN and awarded a major grant to CIAT to run CBN for 8 years. CBN became a success right after its creation; in a span of 8 years we organized several scientific meetings and the last one was at CIAT in March 2004. CBN was much more than a meeting every other year; it was a ‘family’ with one common interest: Cassava. The DGIS grant al- lowed us to launch case studies on several topics and various continents, permitted a large number of small training grants, provided seed money for Introduction grant preparation to a number of scientists, and finally it allowed us to collect all the available
