Course: Statistical analysis for new phenotyping techniques
The statistical analysis techniques will be presented in lectures by experts from Wageningen University & Research and University of Queensland. The lectures will be complemented by hands-on computer training using R.
This course will teach how to get the most out of new types of phenotypic data and integrate these data into genetic analyses. The course will deal with pre-processing of new phenotypic data (image pre-processing, spatial and longitudinal modelling) and show the integration of new phenotypic traits into QTL and genomic prediction models. You will also learn how to relate field and platform data. Examples and exercises will use real data from phenotyping platforms and field experiments.
