FY 2013 AFRI Plant Breeding Projects
The FY2013 AFRI plant breeding projects focus on:
- Pre-breeding and germplasm enhancement, cultivar development, selection theory, applied quantitative genetics, participatory breeding, or development of novel approaches to phenotyping, especially focusing on public plant breeding programs, or
- Plant genome structure and function to connect genotype to phenotype to reduce the breeding cycle time especially focusing on advancing the field of phenomics, and
- Development of content suitable for delivery through the existing eXtension Plant Breeding and Genomics Community of Practice to amplify outreach and education efforts to plant breeders, seed industry professionals, and practitioners.
