Sponsor: Seed Biotechnology Center
Location: Davis, CA
This 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. A hands-on workshop in included, focused on software support to marker application in breeding programs including R and Best Linear Unbiased Prediction (BLUPs).
The class covers the basics of DNA markers, quantitative trait loci, association studies and genomic selection. The core instructors are Allen Van Deynze, UC Davis, and David Francis, The Ohio State University. They will be joined by number of experts in application of genomics to plant breeding from academia and the private industry.
