Genomics of Genebanks

The last few decades have seen an extraordinary growth in genetic data both characterizing the genetic architecture of quantitative trait loci and the structure and evolutionary relationships among entire genomes. Much of the success of these studies can be traced to ready access to the diversity maintained in genebanks. This workshop is intended to consider the opportunities and impediments that come with integration of genomic data that is likely to come from all quarters of global germplasm collections. What are the key resources and analytical approaches that are needed efficiently maintain and mine these collections for important variation? The workshop seeks to explore the relationship between genomic information and the way it can be applied to improving genebank efficiency in ways that anticipate both new uses and new users.
