The Summer Institute in Plant Breeding comprises continuing-education short courses for industry breeders, graduate students, and postdocs within and outside the University of Minnesota.

Read about the 2021 Summer Institute (see page 6)

The next Summer Institute will be held on June 20-24, 2022, and it will include the following six modules (instructors in parentheses):

  • Plant Breeding 101 (James Anderson)
  • Data Bootcamp for Genomic Prediction in Plant Breeding (Aaron Lorenz)
  • Machine Learning Applied to Plant Science (Tolutola Oyetunde)
  • Polyploid Genomics (Laura Shannon)
  • Genomewide Markers in Plant Breeding (Rex Bernardo)
  • Applied Plant Genomics and Bioinformatics (Candice Hirsch)

Further details are the first announcement. Initial plans were to hold the Summer Institute in person on the Saint Paul campus, but we are waiting to see whether in-person classes will be feasible given the continuing pandemic. Regardless of the mode of delivery (in person or via Zoom), registration opens on February 18, 2022.
