The Center for Integrated Breeding Research cordially invites you to join the 3rd CiBreed Fall Workshop on Oct 14th/15th 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 speaker: Amber Hartman Scholz, Leibniz-Institut DSMZ). We are really 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!
