Genotyping and genome editing - in January 2022

Course description

This is a course about genotyping methods in plant mutagenesis and genome editing, like mutagenesis breeding (eg.Targeting Induced Local Lesions in Genomes, TILLING) and genome editing (eg. CRISPR/cas9) especially in non-model plants, the course will:

• introduce the principle and the application of advanced genotyping techniques eg. high-resolution-melting PCR (HRM-PCR), high resolution fragment analysis (HRFA) and capillary electrophoresis etc.

• provide hand-on training on the general good practices for genotyping analysis in molecular lab and the specific equipment(s) and available genotyping platform in the Department of Plant Breeding, Alnarp, SLU
