Integrated breeding platform - Plant breeding software

UCDavis Course: Breeding with Genomics

November 13, 2015

This is a hands-on workshop on software support for marker application in breeding programmes, including 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 programmes.

Course topics will include:

  • Basics of DNA markers
  • Quantitative trait loci
  • Association Studies
  • Transition from maker assisted selection to genomic selection
  • Breeding for disease resistance
  • Integrated Breeding Platform
