Workshop serie - metoder i modern växtförädling

The course is given as a series of three workshops held online and spread over time, a form suggested by PhD students. Every workshop consists of presentations giving a theoretical background of the method and examples of applications, followed by a group discussion related to case studies and own projects. Literature will be available beforehand in a Canvas room.



Timetable

The series consists of three workshops during autumn 2021, each workshop counting for half day scheduled time and approximately one day non-scheduled time for reading, and at last, half day for writing.

Mål

The aim of the workshop series is to create possibility for PhD students in plant breeding to get an overview of some modern methods applied in plant breeding, in order to help choice of methods when planning research projects. Methods that will be taken up are a) genome selection, a tool for predicting genetic value of breeding lines based on genome-wide marker data; b) association

mapping, a method for mapping quantitative trait loci for selection of genotypes closely resembling the phenotype; and c) genome editing, a method for specifically targeted genetic modifications.

Advantages and limitations of the methods for plant breeding as well as ethical issues will be discussed.



Learning outcomes

After completing the course, the student shall be able to

- have knowledge about advantages and limitations of some modern plant breeding methods

- choose between methods when planning research project
