Using Genetic Resource Data for Breeding - The G2P- SOL Advanced Training School II
Understanding and utilizing genetic diversity is key to the sustainability of agriculture in the face of a changing environment and the appearance of new pests. Within G2P-SOL, 30,000 accessions from eggplant, pepper, potato and tomato are genotyped while a subset of these plants were phenotyped in detail. In this training school, you will learn about the state-of-the-art methodologies for using and mining the data generated in the project.
In this three-day training webinar we provide you with guidance to the research activities and findings of the integrated EU Horizon project G2P-SOL.
We will focus on the fruit bearing diploid Solanaceae crops eggplant, pepper and tomato. The lectures will focus on case studies dealing with the use of vegetable diversity from gene bank collections for the breeding of improved vegetable cultivars.
