ICRISAT Training on Molecular Markers for Crop ImprovementJuly 30, 2010
The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics ( ICRISAT) Center of Excellence in Genomics supported by the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India,will hold its Eighth Training Course entitled "Application of Molecular Markers in Crop Improvement " to be held on November 8-19, 2010 at the ICRISAT Campus at Patancheru, Greater Hyderabad, India. ICRISAT-CEG has already trained 160 scientists. Details about these courses and participants are available at http://www.icrisat.org/CEG/cegregistration.htm.
The major focus of the course will be on analysis and the use of marker genotyping data rather than on data generation. Course will provide hands-on training on sample preparation, the experimental design and data analysis components of molecular markers by using different biometrics and bioinformatics tools.
The course is open to mainly Indian scientists however, few scientists from developing countries who have demonstrable ability to use the techniques taught can also apply. Last date for submitting on line application is 25 August 2010. To register go to http://www.icrisat.org/ceg/cegregistration1.htm.
