WHEAt and barley Legacy for Breeding Improvement

Symposium From Genotype to Phenotype: Modelling plant adaptation across multiple environments, Wageningen, 16 November 2017

A symposium organised by Biometris and Whealbi :

From Genotype to Phenotype: Modelling plant adaptation across multiple environments

will be held in Wageningen (Auditorium C1040, Orion Building, Wageningen Campus)  Thursday 16 of November 2017

The symposium is subdivided in three sessions.

The first session will focus on the importance of collecting, generating and characterizing the genetic variation for traits contributing to adaptation.

The second session focuses on strategies for phenotypic characterization across environments.

Finally, we discuss statistical and crop growth modelling approaches to connect genotypes and phenotypes across environments.
