The principles of animal and plant breeding are increasingly coalescing due to advances in technology and increasing demands and opportunities for agriculture.
The University of Edinburgh, Scotland’s Rural College and the Excellence in Breeding Platform of the CGIAR are hosting a two week graduate level course on “Data-Driven Animal and Plant Breeding and Genetics”.
It will take place in Edinburgh from April 27th to May 8th. The course will be taught by John Hickey, Gregor Gorjanc, Ian Mackay, Chris Gaynor and Eduardo Covarrubias and a team of demonstrators and guest lecturers.
The fee covers coffee, lunches, a welcome dinner, a farewell dinner and an afternoon walking tour around Edinburgh
