The French National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment, INRAE, organized an online-training on Marker-Assisted Selection (MAS) on the 30th of June 2022. The three organisations selected for funding within Open Call 1 (Angus Soft Fruit Ltd., Geoplant Vivai and Niwa Berry Breeding) as well as five BreedingValue partners (FNM , IFAPA, INVENIO, S'O and UCUK ) participated in the training.
This training was also open to all partners of the BreedingValue project. A total of more than 20 participants was present.
The participants learned about MAS in breeding programmes, the development of markers for MAS and could also listen to an example of MAS in cherry.
