Who should attend?

Graduate students, geneticists and breeders in Australia who are interested in applied genomics, applied quantitative genetics, linkage analysis, linkage map construction, QTL mapping, simulation and optimization of breeding strategies will benefit from this workshop. Participants should be familiar with basic methods in genetics, breeding and statistics.


Overview

One of the major impacts of the high throughput DNA sequencing capabilities becoming available at a relatively low cost is that identification of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) can now be identified in very high numbers.  These SNPs provide sequence-based markers for integration into molecular genetic maps and as genomes are sequenced these molecular markers serve to anchor the genome sequences to genetic maps. The ICIM software is new generation mapping software that can handle the range of challenges associated with having thousands of molecular markers instead of hundreds.  The association of markers in a high density marker map with phenotypes assessed in the mapping population is carried out in ICIM using the latest statistical approaches in QTL analysis and visualization of outputs.  The ICIM software also has the facility for integrating different molecular marker maps based on the presence of shared markers.

Learning Objectives

Through lectures, practices and discussions, you will learn:

l  Plant genetics, genomics and breeding methodology

l  Applied quantitative genetics

l  Estimation of recombination between two linked loci

l  Construction of genetic linkage maps

l  Principles of QTL mapping and statistical comparison of different mapping methods

l  Identification of quantitative trait genes

l  QTL by environment analysis

l  Modeling of plant breeding

l  Comparison and optimization of plant breeding strategies

l  Integration of known gene information into conventional plant breeding
