477: Genomics for Plant Improvement

Course Details

Description:Successful application of genomics to plant improvement requires merging knowledge about how genomic information is generated to the practice of plant breeding, disciplines which may emphasize different aspects of the relationships between genotype and phenotype. <br>This course intends to bridge this gap by focusing content on recent research articles that illustrate how current genomic biology impacts the three key elements of the plant improvement process: characterizing and assembling genetic variation, evaluation of phenotypes, and selection of superior genotypes. Students will apply the information learned in “dry laboratory” exercises where they develop their own strategies to use available functional genomics datasets in plant improvement applications.
