International Short Course: Marker-assisted Breeding (August 2016)


This course in Molecular Breeding will be designed not only to cover the molecular techniques available to a plant breeder for crop improvement but also to cover marker assisted selection with successful examples from around the world. In addition, this course will introduce the participants on how to develop international collaborations in plant breeding and approach funding opportunities nationally, regionally and internationally.

Using a participatory approach, the course will foster linkages and provide opportunities for networking among participants to exchange their experiences and establish regional collaborations.
