Join CGIAR Excellence in Breeding’s BOND and Bayer Crop Science for a look at Bayer’s principles and practices on two key breeding operations issues: field testing and phenotyping contributions to breeding programs, and Health, safety, & environment (HSE) at Bayer breeding programs in Africa.
June 9, 2021
Breeding operations teams are vital for ensuring programs deliver the varieties needed by smallholder farmers. There are many good practices being adopted; it's time to share and collaborate. Join CGIAR Excellence in Breeding (EiB) for the launch of BOND.
June 9, 2021
This meeting “Applied Climate Research in Africa” aims at showcasing examples of scientific actions undertaken in Africa to adapt agricultural systems to the climate-related challenges.
May 12, 2021
How can breeding programs estimate the costs of breeding and its associated research activities? How can breeders make better decisions about resource allocation? Join us as we unpack and explore the UQ Breeding Costing Tool, a powerful solution for breeders and breeding managers.
May 6, 2021
An expert presentation and discussion on how Bayer increased data fluency and analytics to make better decisions. What did they learn and what changes were adopted over the last 10 years? Join Bayer, Cornell, EiB and partners for an examination of how over the years of testing, Bayer has aimed to get increasing confidence for performance in farmers’ fields and conditions.
March 16, 2021
Join CGIAR Excellence in Breeding (EiB) for the official launch of the EiB LDSG shared service. At this important milestone, we take a moment to recap, share improvement ideas, and hear perspectives from donors, vendors and other partners.
February 16, 2021 to February 18, 2021
GOBii has developed open-source genotype data management and marker- and genomic-assisted breeding tools and are working on integrating these with adjacent data management systems and tools. Through this collaboration, two workshops will be hosted in February 2021. Both workshops will focus on GOBii data management and data analysis in Flapjack (marker-assisted backcrossing, pedigree verification and forward breeding) developed in collaboration with the James Hutton Institute), and Galaxy (Genomic Selection).
November 23, 2020
ViTSel supports selection in breeding by visualizing results of multi-environmental, multi-trait analysis. Join us for a demo of the tool's features and discussion of its use.
November 19, 2020
Driving Genetic Gain through selection is at the core of every successful plant breeding program. In this webinar targeting national breeding programs in Africa, EiB will explain the concepts behind genetic gain; introduce tools and approaches to measure genetic gain; provide real examples from a national program in East Africa.
