What will I learn?
The CIOPORA Breeding Academy is a new education program designed specifically for plant breeders and R&D departments of the commercial breeding companies. It provides advanced training in the latest breeding technologies, including New Breeding Techniques (NBT), and the related regulatory aspects.
The implementation of NBT in the breeding process of ornamental crops is becoming increasingly relevant with the pricing going down, both for producing supporting genomic data and for the implementation of the technologies. When deciding on implementing NBT to optimize a breeding process, we are looking not only at the advantages and disadvantages of specific technologies concerning the breeding process. We are looking at a whole set of interactions between the technical possibilities, pricing, and bureaucratic constraints, including regulation and IP.
During the webinar, we will analyze the advantages and disadvantages of implementing NBT in a holistic manner that will include the technologies themselves and the bureaucratic constraints. Since the answer of relevance will be influenced both by characteristics of the crop (availability of data, protocols, etc) and markets to be reached (regulation and IP), the emphasis will be on the questions that need clarification to make an educated decision on the relevance of NBT implementation for specific purposes and goals.
