Plant 2030 Academy: GCBN de.NBI User Training - Summer School 2017

The Summer School in Gatersleben September 25-27 is organized in collaboration with the German Crop BioGreenformatics Network of the German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure (GCBN/de.NBI). The course provides hands-on introduction to useful bioinformatics tools for biologists with little or no previous knowledge. The training will enable biologists to process their own small and large datasets using R and Linux based methods and is entirely computer-based with interspersed lectures.

COST WG1 / EPPN2020 Workshop: Current and Future Applications of Phenotyping for Plant Breeding

Current and future applications of phenotyping for plant breeding

Plants develop by a complex interaction of genotypes with the environments which determines their structure and function and thus essential performance parameters such as yield, productivity or efficient use of resources. To understand these fundamental processes we need to quantitatively assess the phenotype and generate a link to the genotype in order to understand the genetic basis.

Plant Phenotyping Workshop: Integrating the European Plant Phenotyping Community

The workshop is supported by EMPHASIS, EPPN2020, and ECOLCHANGE

Plants develop by a complex interaction of genotypes with the environments. The need to characterize the phenotype is essential to understand fundamental processes which determine the structure and function of plants in particular in times of climate change. While significant progress has been made in molecular methods in recent years and the genomes of several plants have been sequenced this knowledge is not sufficient to simulate the phenotype of a plant without knowing the history and the dynamic interaction of the plant with its environment. Thus, plant phenotyping - quantitative analysis of structure and function of plants - has become the major bottleneck and, quantitative information on genotype-environment relations is the key to address future challenges.
