The application of successful breeding programmes continues to be a dream in Africa due to lack of required capacity and design.  In addition, the use of genomics in identifying genes associated with production and survival in the harsh climatic conditions of Africa has not received adequate attention.The 10-day training workshop consists of lectures and hands on practical training in population genetics, mixed linear models, variance component estimation, genome organization, genetic markers, GWAS and genomic selection among others topics. Participants will also be taught practical programming skills and the use of software.

This workshop will be held in collaboration with University of Georgia, USA.
