Jewels in the Genome Update and Upcoming PAG Workshop

Jewels in the Genome Update

RosBreed presents seven new Jewels in the Genome articles highlighting genomic regions important to the Rosacea. Jewels in the Genome is our short review series. Each Jewel highlights genomic regions that can be used for marker-assisted selection. The Jewels in the Genome series is written to describe marker-assisted breeding advances to an audience that includes producers, students, and professional plant breeders.

Join the Plant Breeding and Genomics Continuing Education Workshop
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.
