Molecular Plant Breeding

Students will learn to analyze data from high throughput biotechnologies, understand the use of such data including quality control measures, make decisions about application of alternative genomic technologies, and whether such technologies will enhance conventional breeding strategies. The course will be developed with applied learning e-modules to provide an understanding of plant breeding strategies, while taking information and approaches provided by genomics and plant biotechnology into consideration.
