Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Synbreed, the Synergistic Plant and Animal Breeding Network, is glad to announce the Synbreed Summer School 2013: “Quantitative Traits: Advanced Topics in Plant and Animal Breeding” which will take place from June 30th to July 12th in Herrsching am Ammersee, Germany.
The Synbreed Summer School provides an introduction to the evolution and selection of quantitative traits for PhD students and postdoctoral researchers in animal and plant breeding. The Summer School will be conducted by Bruce Walsh of the University of Arizona, one of the leading authorities in this field. The course consists of lectures and practical components with hands-on exercises. It is intended as an introduction to the subject and also covers a number of sophisticated approaches to the evolution and selection of quantitative traits.
We are attaching the programme of the course to this mail. Further details are available at the Synbreed website:
We would very much appreciate it if you could pass this announcement on in your organisation/institute or publicise it through the channels at your disposal (mailing lists, announcement on web pages etc.).
