• Workshop-Molecular Atlas

    The Molecular Atlas workshop introduces the participants to the process of obtaining molecular data using a high-throughput genotyping platform, and how to use these molecular data in breeding programs and/or genetic diversity analyses. In addition, participants learn how to search for accessions that are most useful to them by performing different filtering processes within an online information storage platform.

    Product details and features

    To take advantage of this workshop and the molecular atlas, the user must have:

    1. Basic computational knowledge.
    2. Good access to internet service.
    3. Prioritized agronomic characteristics for the accessions you are interested to identify, e.g. useful accession for fodder maize.
    4. Defined agro-ecological adaptation of the accession you are interested to identify, e.g. semiarid high lands.
    5. Basic knowledge of molecular markers.

    It is important to note that the search for accessions with specific characters is possible only for those characters for which phenotypic data exist at least for a sub-group of accessions. The use of molecular data increases the accuracy with which the accessions of interest are selected.
