|Abstract:||Due to the strategic importance of sugarcane to Brazil, FAPESP, the main São Paulo state research funding agency, launched in 2008 the FAPESP Bioenergy Research Program (BIOEN, http://bioenfapesp.org). BIOEN aims to generate new knowledge and human resources for the improvement of the sugarcane and ethanol industry. As part of the BIOEN program, a Workshop on Sugarcane Improvement was held on March 18th and 19th 2009 in São Paulo, Brazil. The aim of the workshop was to explore present and future challenges for sugarcane improvement and its use as a sustainable bioenergy and biomaterial feedstock. The workshop was divided in four sections that represent important challenges for sugarcane improvement: a) gene discovery and sugarcane genomics, b) transgenics and controlled transgene expression, c) sugarcane physiology (photosynthesis, sucrose metabolism, and drought) and d) breeding and statistical genetics. This report summarizes the roadmap for the improvement of sugarcane. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.|
