University of California to hold its course on Breeding with Molecular Markers in Davis in February
Davis, California, USA
December 12, 2011
The University of California is holding its course on Breeding with Molecular Markers in Davis on February 14 and 15, 2012.
This year, we added a module on genomic selection, the latest integration of genomics to breeding. The course covers the basics of DNA markers, quantitative trait loci, the transition from marker assisted selection to genomic selection with a highlight on breeding for disease resistance.
A hands-on workshop on software support to marker application in breeding programs is a part of the course. The program is taught by specialists from both industry and academia. This is a great chance to interact with experts and technology specialists in plant breeding.
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 gen¬erate is applied in breeding programs.
A sponsor product showcase will be held.
