Targeted at both existing and prospective plant breeders from across the world, this annual two-week intensive postgraduate level training course aims to update practitioners on the role and application of statistical and quantitative genetics in practical plant breeding programmes.

The course is the only intensive training programme of its kind to provide the statistical and genetic background to the wide spectrum of quantitative methods, traditional and new, relevant to plant breeding – from practical trial design and analysis through to the role of modern computer software in marker-assisted selection and association genetics.
