Hands-on biometrics training for plant breeding in Nairobi, Kenya

Using sound statistical approaches is one of the most effective ways to increase heritability, response to selection and consequently expected genetic gains. The International Potato Center (CIP) is organizing a biometrics training funded by the OneCGIAR Breeding Resources Initiative and the SweetGAINS BMGF investment implemented by CIP and partners, from 5 till 9 December 2022 in Nairobi, Kenya.

The hands-on training will deal with many important aspects of plant breeding statistics, like modern design of experiments, single and multi-environment trial analysis, understanding target population of environments, genetic gain calculations and the principles of genomic prediction. Following a problem-based learning approach, a large part of the training will consist of working on participants’ own data, to discuss and resolve concrete problems participants experience when analyzing their data.
