Transforming Wheat Breeding Through Integrated Data Management and Analysis with GOBii – POSTPONED
June 5, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:30 pm BST
Update from the Wheat Initiative:
Unfortunately due to the Corvid-19 epidemic we have decided to postpone the Wheat Initiative workshop: “Transforming Wheat Breeding Through Integrated Data Management and Analysis with GOBii” scheduled for 5th June at John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK. We look forward to re-scheduling this event and will re-advertise at the appropriate time.
The Genomic Open-source Breeding informatics initiative (GOBii), funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has developed open-source genotype data management and marker- and genomic-assisted breeding tools. GOBii is now working on integrating these tools with adjacent data management systems and tools.
Our mission is to enable genomic-assisted breeding in routine breeding applications in under-resourced breeding programs. In the last three years, GOBii has given 10+ training and workshops with the audience size ranging between 10 and 75 in Asia, Africa, and North America.
This workshop will focus on GOBii data management and tools. For the wheat community training, GOBii will provide a cloud-based GOBii system and examples of wheat use cases and datasets for demonstration and hands-on training. All training will be given in English.
Please note that this workshop will follow the 2020 Borlaug Global Rust Initiative Technical Workshop, which will be held at the John Innes Centre 1-4 June 2020.
