Workshop series II- Methods in modern plan breeding

Topics that will be taken up are a) Plant breeding, an overview of what is meant by plant breeding today in theory and in practice; b) Phenotyping, development of methods for screening plant material in breeding programmes; and c) Product quality, examples of how the latest methods evaluating raw material and end-use product quality can be applied in plant breeding in order to achieve desirable traits in crop plants. The theme will give an overview on current, emerging and future tools that will positively contribute to breeding of important crops.
