Agroforestry and tree genetics: Making markers meaningful
A training workshop, organised by the World Agroforestry Centre, whose overall purpose is to more effectively apply molecular marker methods for the use and protection of trees in the tropics, with an emphasis on agroforestry systems, and for the benefit of smallholder farmers, rural communities and their environments. The course is structured in four modules - introduction: molecular markers in context; matching molecular markers methods with management issues; collection and analysis of molecular marker data; and application of molecular marker data for practical management. Participants will be fully sponsored and a maximum of 24 participants, from Africa, will be accepted. Deadline is 30 June.
