Accelerating Trait Discovery
an LGC workshop at PAG XXV


Date: Monday, January 16, 2017
Time: 6:10-8:20 PM
Room: San Diego

Modern breeding methods rely on fast and cost efficient identification and utilization of molecular markers. The discovery, validation and screening of associated traits is critical for plant and animal improvement. Here at this workshop, we have speakers who will share their experiences and provide insight on how LGC’s genomic solutions can support your breeding programs from discovery through production-scale testing. Please register to join us! Complimentary refreshments will be provided.
