Entered in the new year with new hope and with this super informative and comprehensive book on cereal genomics with the twist of superb quiz makes me happy actually. Thanks a lot, Molecular Cloud and Dr. Luis.


Thanks for a great learning opportunity!


The quiz covers the hint of the protocol. I have to say the protocol is worth reading and lead me to the river of hte cereal genomics.


I have enhance my skills from go through this quiz.


THANK OU FOR ALL AND HAPPHY CHROSMAS ANS HAPPY 2021


Good job done by molecular cloud team and Dr. Vaschetto for preparing this quiz in the time when everyone is more focusing on other areas of medical science. I have enhance my knowledge for completing this. Nicely prepared but I guess there is a room for more questions or adding some recent topics in it.


I have enjoyed learning this much information about the cereal crops which we consume everyday. This is very interesting to learn and have exposure in a fun way. I would like to have more questions in this area of quiz, and thank you so much for this opportunity Molecular Cloud!!!


Great Comment about the excellent effort of Molecular cloud
