KeyGene’s two-part webinar on PanGenomes: needs, value and applications (part 2)

18 March 2021 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm CET

This two-part webinar on PanGenomes, which Keygene organizes together with an academic partner and Allen Sessions from BASF, will explain what one needs to construct PanGenomes and highlight their value in breeding and research. PanGenomes describe the available genetic diversity within, for instance, plant species, crops or germplasm collections. Because of diminishing costs of genome sequencing, increasing speed of reference genomes construction and advances in bioinformatics, PanGenomes have become an accessible tool. The genome insights delivered by PanGenomes can spectacularly speed up and contribute to plant breeding and research.
