EiB Virtual Meeting 2021 - Day 1

Webinar recording | 16/11/2021

In the opening sessions of the meeting, Michael Quinn and Barbara Wells expressed their visions for CGIAR breeding, before each of the seven EiB modules presented their work and entered into discussion with the 180 meeting participants.

Basics of Genomic Selection 3. Dealing with Accuracy

Other | 29/9/2021

Giovanny Covarrubias-Pazaran presents how to implement genomic prediction to increase the accuracy of field trials by using a genomic relationship matrix to predict haplotypes and individuals. This is especially useful when heritabilities in field trials are low.

Basics of Genomic Selection 4. Selection Intensity and Cycle Time

Other | 29/9/2021

Giovanny Covarrubias-Pazaran presents how to implement genomic prediction to change selection intensity. Additionally, Covarrubias-Pazaran presents how to implement genomic prediction to reduce cycle time.

Basics of Genomic Selection 5. Mid-density Genotyping

Other | 29/9/2021

Eng Hwa Ng and Rajaguru Bohar present the current genotyping shared services available from EiB to enable low, mid and high-density genotyping for the application in genomic selection.

Basics of Genomic Selection 2. Basics of Genomic Selection

Other | 29/9/2021

This session is focused on the basics of what genomic prediction implies in terms of data and models and applications. Common questions raised by CGIAR programs during interactions with the EiB platform are also covered.

Genomic Selection 7. Genetic Variance and Logistics

Other | 29/9/2021

Giovanny Covarrubias-Pazaran presents how to implement genomic prediction to properly manage genetic variance. The logistical challenges that will be faced during adoption are then discussed, along with a summary of the different uses of genomic selection (GS).

Genomic Selection 6. The CIMMYT Maize Breeding Program

Other | 29/9/2021

Yoseph Beyene presents the current state of genomic prediction application in the CIMMYT maize breeding program in East Africa. Yoseph presents the use of GS to increase accuracy and change selection intensity in the maize program and discusses the challenges of implementation in an ongoing breeding program.
