European Breeding Plant College

Double Haploid Breeding
21 November 2016 16:00


In this webinar, we will demonstrate DH breeding technology and novel applications that will help to rationalize the selection process such that breeding becomes a much more tangible discipline combining molecular genetics together with expertise in cell biology and crop physiology.

In particular, the focus is on:

    - Use of double haploids in hybrid breeding

    - Methods to generate double haploid

    - Advantages of doubled haploids

    - Construction of chromosome substitution lines
