Breeding with Molecular Markers course at UC Davis set for February
Davis, California, USA
September 11, 2009
The Seed Biotechnology Center at UC Davis is offering its fourth Breeding with Molecular Marker course on February 16-17, 2010, at UC Davis Buehler Alumni Center.
This course is designed for professional plant breeders who want to learn or expand their knowledge on when and how to incorporate molecular markers into their breeding programs. It is also appropriate for lab professionals who want to learn how their work may be applied.
The course focuses on current marker technologies, quantitative trait loci, marker-assisted selection, appropriate population structures and sizes and quality control. The second day will host a hands-on workshop on how to analyze marker data with phenotypic data in breeding programs.
The course is taught by experienced academic and industry professionals.

The Seed Biotechnology Center was established at UC Davis in 1999 to mobilize the research, educational and outreach resources of the University of California in partnership with the seed and biotechnology industries, and to facilitate discovery and commercialization of new seed technologies for agricultural and consumer benefits.
