Breeding with Genomics
A hands-on workshop on software support to marker application in breeding programs including R, the Integrated Breeding Platform and BLUPS.
The course is aimed at professionals who are directly or indirectly involved in plant breeding and germplasm improvement. It is an opportunity for breeders who are already using these tools to expand their knowledge of new strategies and technologies and for laboratory personnel to appreciate how the marker data that they generate are applied in breeding programs.
• Basics of DNA markers
• Quantitative trait loci
• Association Studies
• Transition from maker assisted selection to genomic selection
• Breeding for disease resistance
• Integrated Breeding Platform
This course is taught by experts from both industry and academia. This is a great chance to interact with experts and technology specialists in plant breeding. Currently, this course is led by Allen Van Deynze, UC Davis.
