Association mapping will be offered late in the fall of 2012, registration will be September of 2012. Topics to be covered will include: Review of Quantitative Genetics and Molecular Breeding, Methods and Software for Association Mapping, Design and Interpretation of QTL mapping, Genomic Selection and Comparison of MAS, Association Breeding and Genomic selection. Pre-requisites - Plant Breeding strategies and Quantitative genetics.
