Following the success of the 2012 Media Fellowship, a second round of Media Fellows will be selected by Biosciences for Farming in Africa (B4FA) to participate in four-day workshops where they will gain insight into the history of plant breeding, how plant genetics work and whether plant breeding could help their country's farmers cope with plant diseases. Led by scientific experts and journalism experts from Africa, Europe and the U.S., participants will gain both scientific knowledge and advance their journalism skills through hands-on experiments and interviews. The fellowships will be held in the four B4FA focus countries: Ghana (March 13-16), Nigeria (March 18-21), Uganda (April 10-13) and Tanzania (April 17- 20).
