EUCARPIA Joint Meeting
Breeding Grasses and Protein Crops in the Era of Genomics
11.09.2017 - 14.09.2017
The Lithuanian Research Centre for Agriculture and Forestry invites you to the joint meeting of Fodder Crops and Amenity Grasses Section and Protein Crops Working Group of EUCARPIA-Oil and Protein Crops Section to be held in Vilnius, Lithuania. Breeding grasses and protein crops is on the verge to exploit the full potential of genomics with methods and technologies such as genomic selection and genome editing gaining momentum in ever increasing number of plant species. To exploit the full potential of these achievements sharing experiences and insights in grass and protein crop breeding community is vital. The meeting will facilitate communication between two related sections of Eucarpia with common plenary sessions and free access to crop-specific sessions.
-Utilisation of genetic resources and pre-breeding.
-Genetic improvement of quality and agronomic traits.
-Breeding for enhanced stress tolerance.
-Implementation of phenomics and biometrics.
-Development of genomic tools and bioinformatics.
