Genomic selection in plant breeding: a hands on practical course using R, Canary Island, Spain

Genomic selection in plant breeding: a hands on practical course using R, Lanzarote, Canary Island, Spain

3-6 June 2019

This year the course will be hosted by Cabildo de Lanzarote, Spain.

The aim of this course is to provide a basic quantitative and statistical framework to apply genomic selection in a routine manner. In this sense, the course is focusing on the application of plant breeding concepts through practical exercises in R. The course will provide participants with the relevant theory of GS models, as well as, with hands-on experience with relevant Genomic selection techniques. No previous R experience is required.

This year we will extend with the introduction of multi-trait analysis, GxE and genomic mating concepts.
