Subject: Reminder: AG2PI Field Day on breeding challenges in G2P, 7/21 @ 10:30 CDT!
To: Scott, Nicole M [AGRON] <nmscott@iastate.edu>

Dear AG2PI member,


This is a reminder that the next AG2PI Field Day is on Wednesday, July 21 from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM (Central Time, -5 GMT). In this field day, Dr. Amit Dhingra will share two case studies in G2P that focus on the breeding challenges in fruiting trees. During this event, he will describe how his group is working to rapidly generate novel traits and perform wide crosses in species across different ecological adaptations. Challenges include mutation breeding and the limitations of breeding in a controlled environment.


We invite you to register for this Zoom event at https://tinyurl.com/AG2PI-FD9. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email with information about joining the meeting. A link to join the meeting will also be provided the day of the event on the AG2PI website. If you are unable to attend the live session, then you will be able to find a recording at ag2pi.org/, at a later date.


Feel free to share this message and attached flyer with colleagues at your institution.


Kind regards,
