Data-driven animal and plant breeding and genetics course

The principles of animal and plant breeding are increasingly coalescing due to advances in technology and increasing demands and opportunities for agriculture. This two-week graduate level course of integrated lectures and practicals is designed to equip students, academics and practitioners with theoretical and applied knowledge, skills and tools to design, optimise and deploy Data Driven Animal and Plant Breeding and Genetics techniques. The course will take place in Edinburgh in May 2021. It will be jointly delivered by scientists and teachers from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland’s Rural College and the CGIAR’s Excellence in Breeding Platform, with guest lectures from industry collaborators.
