Genomic Selection in Plant Breeding: A Hands-on Practical Course in 'R'. Granada, Spain

Dear colleagues,

Our course on introduction to Genomic selection in plant breeding is already on the web. 

This year the course will be hosted by University of Granada, Spain. 

Please bear in mind that there is a limited number of participants.

This is the direct link to the flyer.

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. 

This year we will extend a little bit the course and we will introduce Genomic Mating.
