Symposium--Plant Breeding Post Genome Sequence: Where Do We Go from Here?
C01 Crop Breeding and Genetics
The goal of this symposium is to highlight thoughts/ideas on harnessing the vast amounts of genome sequence data now available for most crop plants to help spur a 2nd Green Revolution. Inexpensive and high-throughput sequencing platforms are revolutionizing our ability to fingerprint plant genomes; but thoughtul reflection and sharing of ideas is needed to best leverage the abundant genome sequence data to realize genetic gain in plant breeding. This symposium will showcase the ideas of prominent scientists in the field and cuts across several C divisions and A communities.
