3rd CiBreed Fall Workshop - SAVE THE DATE - October 14 & 15, 2021

The Center for Integrated Breeding Research cordially invites you to join the 3rd CiBreed Fall Workshop on Oct. 14-15, 2021! Save the date!


Following our mission to bring together expertise from plant and animal breeding, we are trying to assemble a program looking at important topics from different perspectives. The opening session will be entitled “Ethical considerations in breeding”. It will encompass invited talks from several disciplines and cover topics related to modern biotechnologies such as genome editing, breeding goals in animals and implications of the Nagoya treaty. Confirmed speakers are Amber Hartman Scholz, Leibniz-Institut DSMZ, Jan Grossarth, LMU München, and Peter Sandøe (HEALTH University of Copenhagen). We are very much looking forward to lively discussions! Other sessions will be on hybrid breeding, machine learning (confirmed speaker: Jose Crossa, CIMMYT) and breeding programs. The workshop will be online and registration is free. Join!
