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 programmes.
