The IPK summer school provides a comprehensive overview on how plant genetic resources can be a valuable resource for the discovery of high yielding and stress-resistant varieties in modern agriculture. In order to understand the stages of development, you will get to know various techniques and approaches to dissect the genetic basis of a trait of interest.
You will start with crossing of barley and embryogenic pollen cultures to generate homozygous double haploids. You will get deep insights in advanced phenotyping and genotyping techniques. The generated data will be used for QTL (quantitative trait locus) mapping and GWAS (genome wide association study) analysis. Finally, the identified candidate genes will be located by single copy FISH (Fluorescence in situ hybridization) and you will investigate the evolution of a domestication locus.
September 4th: Using old varieties and modern tools to develop advanced breeding material

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.
You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).
Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.
You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).
If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
