Quantitative Methods for Plant Breeding course

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventWorkshop, Seminar, or Course


NIAB run a two week intensive course in Quantitative Methods for Plant Breeding, covering relevant aspects of statistics, quantitative genetics and population genetics. There are 25 participants every year. To date, no-one has said they would not recommend the course to others. The course has also been put on in Australia, France, India (once at ICRISAT and once at the Punjab Agricultural University) and Malaysia. We update it every year to disseminate developments and methods resulting from out own research work in MAGIC, genomic selection, association mapping and plant breeding strategy. It has resulted in a global set of new contacts, some of which have resulted in successful collaborations.
