Who should attend?

 

CIMMYT staff and visitors in CIMMYT headquarter, and CIMMYT’s partners across Mexico who are interested in applied quantitative genetics, linkage analysis, linkage map construction, QTL mapping, simulation and optimization of breeding strategies will benefit from this course. Participants should be familiar with basic methods in plant genetics, plant breeding and statistics. You are welcome to bring your genetic data to this course.

 

Costs: There will not be any charge for this course and lunches will be provided by CIMMYT. Each participant will have to cover his/her own travelling and accommodation expenses, if any.

 

Computers: Each participant must bring a laptop computer that can run Microsoft Windows applications. A USB memory stick will be distributed to all participants at the beginning of the course. This contains the lecture presentations, the QTL IciMapping integrated software V3.3, QU-GENE simulation tools, exercises and answers, etc.
