We are excited to announce a 3-week short-course, Programming and computer algorithms in animal breeding with a focus on single-step GBLUP and reality of genomic selection, from May 7th to May 25th, 2018 at the University of Georgia, Athens, GA.
This course will cover the programming in Fortran 95/2003 (week 1), computing algorithms in animal breeding & introduction to BLUPF90 family programs (week 2), and basics & applications of single-step genomic BLUP (week3). You can partially attend the course. This course is aimed at graduate students and professionals who are familiar with mixed models and quantitative genetics (animal breeding).
