The cereal section congress of EUCARPIA (www.eucarpia.org) is the opportunity to learn about recent developments in genetics and cereal breeding, from basic research on quantitative genetics, breeding methodology, crop modelling, genome organization and evolution to applied research on genome editing, QTL detection for marker assisted selection, plant-micro-organism interaction, biotic and abiotic stresses. The 2nd edition of the International Wheat Innovation Workshop (IWIW2) is the opportunity to present complementary results obtained in major wheat programmes and pave the way for future collaborations and funding opportunities.

Plant breeding is often presented as a sustainable way to produce more and better. Recent developments in genomics, genotyping, phenotyping and breeding methodologies open new perspectives to design future varieties, with higher performance or resilience, targeting more specific conditions and utilizations, and more environmentally friendly.

(The 2nd edition of the International Wheat Innovation Workshop (IWIW2) will be organised on 22nd of March)
