Welcome to the West African Centre for Crop Improvement (WACCI), a Centre of excellence located on the University of Ghana campus. Our aim is to enhance Agriculture in West Africa by training and equipping doctoral students with conventional and molecular plant breeding tools. The Centre is composed of an array of talented scientists, staff and administrators who are loyal and committed to WACCI's vision of becoming the foremost Centre for plant breeding training in West and Central Africa. Added to WACCI's diverse human resource, is a student body that cuts across the West and Central African Sub-region. Whether you are a prospective student, a potential donor, an institute seeking to sponsor a student at the doctoral level in plant breeding or just a visitor, it is a pleasure to welcome you to our website. Hope you will find all the information here very useful.
