Training on breeding data management with BreedBase
18.03.24 > 21.03.24
07:00 am > 02:00 pm UTC-11:00
Access to high-quality data for decision-making plays a crucial role in modern plant breeding. Using digital and standardized approaches for data recording and centralized data storage is an effective way to increase heritability, response to selection and consequently expected genetic gains. The International Potato Center (CIP) in collaboration with the Boyce Thompson Institute is organizing a training on breeding data management with BreedBase funded by the Crops to End Hunger project (CtEH-14: Investing in (sweet)potato breeding networks to mitigate climate change) from 18 till 21 March 2024 at the CIP Headquarters in Lima, Peru.
Scientists from CGIAR centers, National Agricultural Research and Extension Systems (NARES) or Universities in the LAC region are encouraged to apply for participation through the registration form not later than January 26th, 2024. Acceptance for the workshop includes free participation, local travel in Peru, coffee breaks and lunch. Application for additional sponsorship for accommodation and travel is also possible through the registration form. The workshop will be promoting social inclusion and gender equality.
