Details of training participants as of August 2013
The CEG offers trainings and short courses to provide scientists/researchers updated information on application of novel genomics technology in crop research and breeding. These courses are specifically designed to address the requirements of users of the CEG’s high-throughput Genotyping Service Lab. This includes: experimental design, sample submission and data analysis; genomics applications covering from molecular markers and marker-based diversity assessment to gene/QTL/trait mapping and marker-assisted breeding; construction of genetic linkage maps; QTL mapping based on purpose-created populations; and association (LD) mapping using breeding lines or germplasm accessions are covered, as is use of decision support systems for plant breeding etc. Courses also provide an introduction to cluster analysis and construction of dendrograms, diversity analysis software and next generation sequencing and bioinformatics tools.
As a part of CoE grant from Department of Biotechnology, the CEG has offered 11 training courses. Altogether so far, a total of 288 scientists (including 61 female scientists) including 182 scientists from National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) institutes/ State Agricultural Universities (SAUs), DBT and other centres and private research organizations/ foundations, and 45 scientists from 16 developing countries of Africa and Asia have been trained in modern genomics and molecular breeding.
