Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Synbreed, the Synergistic Plant and Animal Breeding Network, is glad to
Synbreed Summer School 2013: "Quantitative Traits: Advanced Topics in Plant
and Animal Breeding"
which will take place from June 30th to July 12th in Herrsching am Ammersee,
The Synbreed Summer School provides an introduction to the evolution and
selection of quantitative traits for PhD students and postdoctoral
researchers in animal and plant breeding. The Summer School will be conducted
by Bruce Walsh of the University of Arizona, one of the leading authorities
in this field. The course consists of lectures and practical components with
hands-on exercises. It is intended
as an introduction to the subject and also covers a number of sophisticated
approaches to the evolution and selection of quantitative traits.
We are attaching the programme of the course to this mail. Further details
are available at the Synbreed website:
We would very much appreciate it if you could pass this announcement on in
your organisation/institute or publicise it through the channels at your
disposal (mailing lists, announcement on web pages etc.).
