The 7th Annual Cornell University Graduate Student Plant Breeding Symposium will explore topics related to the genetics and genomics community at large. In the genomics era, the barriers between species focused genetics are eroding and innovations in genetics and genomics are broadly applicable across kingdoms. Plant and animal breeding have been advancing on separate tracks for decades but recently have begun to converge. How can plant breeders integrate advances and traditional practices in animal breeding and model species genetics to face the agricultural challenges of the 21st century?
