Greetings to All ICGI members!


Good news. The Esquel group, one of the most dynamic and progressive global-scale textile and apparel manufacturers, and participant and sponsor of genome sequencing of the extra long staple cotton will financially support the 2014 Biennial Conference of the International Cotton Genome Initiative (ICGI). The Esquel Fellowship will support 5~10 scientists and graduates from the developing countries to attend this conference. Anyone who is interested in applying the fellowship, please register and submit your abstract at, and send an application letter including how much money you want to apply and your vitae to me.


We are looking forward to seeing you at the 2014 ICGI Conference.
