NGGIBCI-2014

4th International Workshop
on

Next Generation Genomics and Integrated Breeding for Crop Improvement

ICRISAT, Patancheru, India

4th NGGIBCI successfully completed
4th international workshop on Next Generation Genomics and Integrated Breeding for Crop Improvement (NGGIBCI-2014) was organized at the ICRISAT headquarters from 19 – 21 February 2014. The workshop was the largest workshop in the series of our earlier workshops on next generation genome sequencing (NGS) data analysis organized in 2009, 2010 and 2012 and brought over 150 delegates from 20 countries. This workshop had a very rich scientific programme presenting high quality science with enormous impact on crop breeding. In total, 37 high quality presentations covering the use of next generation genomics for crop improvement across twelve scientific sessions covering next generation genomics, novel mapping approaches and QTLs, sequence to phenotype, genomics-assisted breeding, integrated breeding, breeding for target environments, genomic selection, decision support platforms for breeding, and new horizons for crop improvement during three days.
ICRISAT’s Centre of Excellence in Genomics (CEG) organized this international workhop, as a part of Critical Focus Area (CFA)-Molecular Breeding, in collaboration with CGIAR Generation Challenge Programme (GCP) and Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India, and in partnership with CGIAR Research Program (CRP) on Grain Legumes and CGIAR Research Program (CRP) on Dryland Cereals.
We also arranged live telecast of the meeting that helped colleagues from all over the world. These presentations have been made available as recorded videos through YouTube.

Background:

The ICRISAT's Center of Excellence (CoE) in Genomics (CEG, www.icrisat.org/ceg) in collaboration with CGIAR Generation Challenge Programme (GCP) and Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Govt of India is pleased to announce 4 th International Workshop on Next Generation Genomics and Integrated Breeding (NGGIB-2014) for Crop Improvement at ICRISAT Campus, Greater Hyderabad, India. This workshop is being organized in continuation of our earlier three workshops on NGS data analysis (http://ceg.icrisat.org/1-ngs.htm; http://ceg.icrisat.org/2-ngs.htm and http://ceg.icrisat.org/3-ngs.htm).

This workshop will have following themes that will include presentations and discussions as follows:

Next generation genomics
Novel mapping approaches and QTLs
Advances in phenotyping and trait mapping
Marker-assisted selection / backcrossing
Genomic
selection
Decision support tools for breeding
New horizons for crop improvement

Several eminent scientists working in the field of next generation genomics and integrated breeding will be sharing their experience of crop improvement in this workshop.
