Join OSA and our fellow Upper Midwest Collaborative Plant Breeding Network project partners for a series of six webinars on organic plant breeding for independent plant breeders, farmers interested in selection, regional seed companies, and plant breeding students.
February 14 – Data Management and Analysis
This sixth and final webinar in the series will focus on data management and analysis. Specific topics will be determined based on the interests of the regional network of the collaborative breeding project. They will likely include tracking pedigrees, managing crossing blocks, early generation nursery data management, understanding genotype by environment interactions in multi-locational trials, and how to get the most out of the data analysis tools provided through SeedLinked, and resources for more advanced analysis.
Although the content will be targeted to the Upper Midwest, much of the material will be relevant to other regions as well. Participants will benefit from online interaction with independent breeders, seed company breeders, and farmer breeders from around the U.S. Webinars will be interactive and accompanied by an online resources section.
This project was funded in 2014 by the Organic Research and Extension Initiative grant, part of the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture. Grant number 2020-51300-32176.
