Excursions and field trips

Agrig005-Genomics in research and industry excursion: June 11-14, 2019

ExcursionThe third semester Agrigenomics students have the opportunity to attend a four-day excursion in the context of the module “Agrig005-Genomics in research and industry“. During this excursion the students learn how genomic information is generated and applied at highly qualified research institutes on a large scale. They become acquainted with the application of high throughput techniques for genotyping, transcriptome, metabolome and proteome analysis and phenotyping to develop novel breeding strategies on the industrial level that aim to improve crop and animal production.This year, Agrigenomics students will visit the following outstanding companies and research institutes in the field of plant and animal breeding research in Denmark:

  • Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University, Denmark
  • DLF Seeds, Roskilde, Denmark
  • Viking Genetics, Randers, Denmark
  • Nordic Seed, Odder, Denmark
  • AU Foulum, Viborg, Denmark

 

Agrig-018: Syngenta excursion- July 4, 2019

SyngentaThe plant breeding institute offers every year a field trip to the breeding company Syngenta Seeds GmbH in Harzhof. Breeders of this traditional company provide an overview of the current status of wheat breeding in Germany and Europe. This field trip is a great opportunity for Agrigenomics students to get to know the most important breeding objectives in wheat as well as the breeding methods which are being applied by wheat breeders to improve the yield and disease resistance in one of the world’s most important crops.
