WHEAt and barley Legacy for Breeding Improvement


A number of trainings are organized during the course of the project:

Title of the training course Organiser Summary or precise date to follow
 High-throughput and precision phenotyping for most relevant agronomic traits (abiotic stress tolerance, response to major disease, plant growth descriptors)  CREA (+ whealbi consortium) 18-20 April 2016, CREA, Italy
SNP discovery and analysis using next generation technologies: exome capture and RNAseq JHI (and contribution IPK and PTP) 19-20 May 2016, JHI Dundee, UK
Allele mining / genetic analysis University of Zurich 6-7 June 2017, Wageningen, NL
Databases, SNP calling and genetic analysis of multi-environment data Wageningen University, Helmholtz Zentrum Muenchen, INRA 7-9 June 2017, Wageningen, NL
Crop Management and Development of Innovative Cropping Systems NIAB 29-30 May 2018, NIAB Cambridge, UK
Wheat and Barley Pre-breeding KWS 30-31 May 2018, NIAB Cambridge, UK

A special emphasis of these training events will be put on including young scientists (easy access to the training), new member states (organization of one practical assisted pre-breeding training in Hungary) and these trainings will be widely open to private companies (for technology transfer) and breeders academies (KWS breeders academy for instance).

Attention will be given to the content of the training to interest not only the scientific community but also the end-users. Training sessions will move from general/exploitable results to the detailed production of results and methods, giving the opportunity for the participants to follow a short or long training (i.e. from 1 to 5 days).

When possible, these training activities will be linked or co-organised with other European projects, for instance the one on minor cereals.
