Event Details

The UC Davis Seed Biotechnology Center Plant Breeding AcademySM (PBA) programs and courses have enjoyed global popularity with both seed and plant breeding professionals, utilizing a model focusing on the practical application of science and theory. These programs feature veteran instructors from industry and academia and have successfully been taught in an in-person format.

Based upon a seed industry-wide survey assessing continuous educational needs during the pandemic, we are launching a set of on-line short courses called the PBA E-Series.

  • Quantitative Genetics
  • Principles of Plant Breeding
  • Plant Breeding and Gene editing
  • Plant Breeding and Genomic Selection
  • Innovation Strategies and Tactics
  • Leadership
