UC Davis Seed Biotechnology Center (SBC) is continuing with registration for the UC Davis Plant Breeding Academy (PBA). The PBA is a two-year course addressing the reduced numbers of plant breeders being trained in academic programs. The goal is to develop the skills and abilities of current industry personnel to enable them to become independent breeders or more valuable contributors to larger breeding programs. Targeted participants are those currently involved in breeding programs who lack the academic background in genetics theory and practice to advance as independent breeders or current breeders who desire a refresher course or would like to broaden their expertise.
