International Symposium of the Society for Plant Breeding 11-13 February 2020 in Tulln, Austria

Computomics presenting at the International Symposium of the Society for Plant Breeding (GPZ) in Tulln, Austria on February 11-13 2020

The motto for this year’s symposium is Digital Breeding, which includes all topics and questions relevant to crop improvement.

We are happy to contribute to these meaningful discussions with our poster titled "The Power of Big Data Integration in Phenotype Predictions" at the symposium.

Plant breeding is widely recognized as a crucial tool for addressing the effects of climate change and feeding a growing population. Breeders are working on developing new varieties in a very complex landscape to meet this demand. Plant breeding, plant genetics, and integration of new programs into existing breeding schemes presents a unique set of demands and challenges. Here, we present one aspect of our phenotype prediction tool SeedScore® and how the use of machine learning capabilities and advanced algorithms allows for large data simulation which is able to predict millions of progeny to improve identification of highly quantitive trait-marker correlations. Our machine learning-based solution is able to integrate environmental calculations to complete the full prediction cycle of GxExM. 

Stop by our poster P-46 or schedule a meeting with us in advance to gain insights into how we can help plant breeders accelerate breeding programs.
