Center for Integrated Breeding Research
2nd CiBreed Fall Workshop on the 29th of September 2020
Thanks a lot to all speakers, chairs and participants for contributing to our workshop!
Close to 300 scientists from all over the world had registered, and about 200 or more were online at any point during the meeting.
The CiBreed - Centre for Integrated Breeding Research
The Center for Integrated Breeding Research at the University of Göttingen aims to bring together the expertise of plant and animal breeding and forest genetics with findings from natural and social sciences in order to establish an internationally visible position in this field.
The integration of plant and animal breeding opens up synergies and enables the fast and efficient development of new methods. Breeding is not reduced to classical, quantitative-genetic or genomic breeding methods, but important aspects such as sustainability, economy and social acceptance are also considered.
The Center is financially supported by international leading companies in plant and animal breeding, allowing the funding of four additional professorships in the field of animal and plant breeding.
The CiBreed is coordinating the new master program "Integrated Plant and Animal Breeding" (iPAB) which will help to meet the strong demand for well-educated breeding specialists in industry and science.
