Green Super Rice: GSR training workshop on Plant Molecular Techniques held at CAAS in Beijing China. The workshop was a combination of lectures and pratical use of QTL mapping and statistic softwares.
GSR Training workshop on Plant Molecular Technique was successfully held between August 30th to September 10th, 2010 at the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences in Beijing China.
Delegates from thirteen countries participated this 2-week intense workshop. The workshop was a combination of lectures and practical use of QTL mapping and statistic softwares. Participation to the ICPMB conference (International Conference on Plant Molecular Breeding) was part of the program, where the delegates could interact and hear the presentations of the most up-to date molecular science from world-renowned scientists of this field.
There were two outings held- one time to the Great Wall of China and another outing to the Forbidden City. During this two-week in Beijing, delegates have stayed at the CAAS guest house, where many local facilities could be easily accessed. Some delegates also experienced the use of local subway.
Valuable feedbacks were received from the delegates. Their opinion would greatly help us to refine our future training course.
