Wheat breeding 2014: Tools, targets & progress

Recent years have seen the development of powerful new tools for wheat breeders, including genome data, doubled haploid mapping populations and mathematical modelling of whole systems. This conference will bring researchers from academia and institutes together with wheat breeders to debate the opportunities that these new tools offer and how they are being applied for wheat improvement. It will also engage representatives from the food industry to describe the key targets that they want to see incorporated into breeding programmes.
