ICAR-IARI is organising a 10-days Training Programme on “Pathophenotyping and Genome Guided Characterization of Rust Fungi Infecting Wheat and other Cereals” sponsored by National Agricultural Higher Education Project (NAHEP) – Centre for Advanced Agricultural Science & Technology (CAAST), on Genomics Assisted Crop Improvement & Resource Management, ICAR-IARI, New Delhi, scheduled from January 22 – February 01, 2020.
The CAAST training has the following components:
- Lectures on principles and practices of basic & advanced phenotyping, genotyping and molecular tools & techniques used in Wheat Rust Pathology and Plant Pathology: The lectures will be delivered in the forenoon of the day during the training period.
- Demonstration of the advanced research facilities: Visit to facilities like TEM, SEM, Confocal Microscope, Genome sequencers, Bioinformatic data center, Phytotron and Phenomics facility etc.
- Group activities for case studies: Student groups will be given a set of rust pathogens to characterize using phenotyping & genomic tools.
- Interactive discussion presentation and Quiz: Each student is expected to make a short presentation of their present work and future work plan on pathophenotyping and genomics programme of their choice organism. Presentation will be facilitated by coordinators during evening hours on all days during the programme. Students are also encouraged to bring their own biological material to work with.
