What is it about?
Ethiopian barley has a unique genetic structure compared to the world. This paper showed one example of how Ethiopian barley has a unique genetic population structure. The farmer's knowledge indicates they select barley for their use in their community. Thus, they have different accessions to their cultivation land.

Why is it important?
The selection of barley for different use creates different genetic structures. Understanding the history of barley selection will facilitate our current breeding program.
