We hope your 2022 field season is off to a great start. Before the season hits its peak, we invite you to join us for a 3-day workshop entitled Applied Quantitative Genetics for Plant Breeders (that means you!). In this workshop, you’ll learn how to apply the principles and techniques of quantitative genetics to improve breeding efficiency. In particular, we will focus on Selection theory, Genomic Selection, GWAS, MAS, and how to put it all together in a breeding program. The workshop will be a combination of lectures and hands-on exercises, all over Zoom and in person. Come learn with us!
