Paris Plant Breeding Symposium 2017 "Genetic Diversity: a Cornerstone of Plant Breeding"
This symposium will take place on September 26th 2017 at AgroParisTech and is organized as part of the "DuPont Plant Sciences Symposia series". Through this symposium, the organizers would like to underline how plant breeding can make the best use of genetic diversity.
This Symposium aims at showing that genetic diversity :
- Is a cornerstone of plant breeding
- Needs to be addressed with the adequate methods
- Can be harnessed with the most recent selection methods (QTL, GWAS, GS…)
- Can even be generated using bio-technologies.
The symposium is mainly intended for Ph.D students.
