Modern Genomic Methods for Crop Improvement in Breeding Programs

Modern Genomic Methods for Crop Improvement in Breeding Programs

Advances in genomic technologies have revolutionized biological data discovery, and some of the greatest gains are being realized in agricultural research. With current estimates of over 9 billion people by the year 2050 and 40 percent of our current population already malnourished, creating sustainable agriculture techniques is one of our most pressing concerns.

Modern crop improvement programs are harnessing the power of plants’ genetic variability to drive selection of desirable traits, and genomic selection methods promise to take us further to predict the gains that can be made in breeding experiments.

In this webcast, Eric Jackson and Kelci Miclaus discuss how these methodologies can be used not just to increase production but to drive selection of healthier crops that can improve human health and provide sustainable agricultural solutions for farmers through advanced prediction, cross-evaluation and simulation techniques in JMP Genomics software.
