Training course on the ‘Advanced biometrical techniques in crop improvement research’, gathers participants for knowledge-sharing to improve technology

To share knowledge on the application of advanced biometrical techniques in crop development and to provide hands-on training for using statistical software, ICARDA in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Pulses Research (IIPR), Kanpur, India organised a six-day training course on “Advanced biometrical techniques in crop improvement research” on 10-15 October, 2011 at IIPR, Kanpur. This training qualified scientists from India, Nepal and Bangladesh for designing the variety trials and analysing the data from multi-environment trials for identifying the desired genotypes to enhance breeding efficiency and science quality. Trainees are expected to transfer information to other colleagues, and incorporate their knowledge in their on-going projects. The training covered topics on statistical design and analysis of variety trials and use of ICARDA’s online biocomputing facility. The training was given by Dr Murari Singh and Mr Khaled El-Shama’a from ICARDA and Dr N Nadarajan from the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR).
