International Plant Breeding Seminar Series
October 5 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Thursday, repeating until November 9, 2023
The fall series will consist of six seminars over the course of consecutive weeks beginning October 5 – November 9, 2023, on Thursdays from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm EST.
Our goal is to build a platform that would bring together a global community of persons directly or indirectly working in plant breeding, or with just the interest to learn about what is fueling plant breeding in different parts of the world. We would appreciate your help in forwarding this invitation to other colleagues and institutions that might be interested in attending or participating.
