Molecular marker applications in crop genetics and breeding
Organised by the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), with support from India`s Department of Biotechnology (DBT), this training course provides participants with a hands-on opportunity to gain expertise in the use of molecular markers in diversity analysis, gene/QTL mapping and marker-assisted breeding. It focuses on the experimental design and data analysis components of molecular markers. The expenses of selected participants from India are covered by DBT and the course is also open to a few participants outside of India, who have to cover their own expenses. Deadline is 31 December 2007.
