Invitation to Workshop at PAG & UC Davis Short Course Announcement

Plant Breeding and Genomics Continuing Education Workshop at PAG

International Plant & Animal Genome XXI Conference, San Diego, CA, USA
Date: Monday, January 14, 2013
Time: 5-7pm
Location: Garden Salon 2 (above Charlies restaurant)

The Plant Breeding and Genomics (PBG) Community of Practice on will highlight the need, both locally and globally, for technical continuing education in the field of genomic assisted crop improvement. The growth of publically available sequence data for numerous crop species, and increasing power of open access computational tools, has opened up new strategies for crop improvement for all plant breeders. Inquiry-based learning, through self-paced, how-to, educational modules is proving to be a successful way to connect breeding professionals to emerging technologies. This session will provide an introduction to the PBG community, its resources, and strategies to integrate and expand the community.
