186 Genomics and Breeding for Enhanced Climate Adaptation and Mitigation: New Knowledge and Knowledge Transfer

Oral Session
Agriculture and Natural Resources Science for Climate Variability and Change: Transformational Advancements in Research, Education and Extension This session will bring genomics - based breeding to application by providing the science to validate genetic associations and directing cooperatives that will apply the technology in operational programs. These projects combine the drivers behind the science, the immediate target of extension, and establish the platform for delivering education and more distributed extension materials.
