The 15th Sweetpotato for Profit and Health Initiative (SPHI) Sweetpotato SpeedBreeders Annual Meeting was held between 6th and 10th June, 2016 at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) Campus in Nairobi, Kenya. For the second time, the meeting brought together scientists from the Sweetpotato for Security and Health in Africa (SASHA) project and the Genomic Tools for Sweetpotato Improvement project (GT4SP), both of which target genetic improvement of sweetpotato for better adaptation, increased productivity and nutritional quality.

The first two days were dedicated to a training workshop to expose participants to molecular / genomic tools. The last three days of the meeting focused on sharing progress, improving breeding methods, and considering next steps.
