Join the G2P-SOL advanced training school on the use of genetic resource data for breeding!

In the framework of G2P-SOL, the Wageningen University and Research (WUR-DLO) organises an advanced training school to provide young breeders with guidance on how to use vegetable diversity from genebank collections for breeding improved vegetable cultivars.

The training school will take place at the Wageningen University and Research in the Radix building at the Campus on the 30th April and the 1st May 2019. It will comprise four modules spanning from the presentation of the genetic diversity in genebanks to the G2P-SOL infrastructures, and will count on the participation of internationally well-known lecturers. It is aimed at junior vegetable breeders and PhD/Postdoc researchers from breeding institutes with keen interest in exploring natural biodiversity maintained in genebanks more effectively, and utilizing the detailed characterization from state-of-the-art omics technologies.

Registration is open until the 31st March 2019. Acceptance will be on a first come, first serve basis.
