Online Master's Plant Breeding

Wageningen University & Research

Master Postgraduate Wageningen

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Agriculture and environment
Course summary Plant Breeding plays an important role in the development of plant varieties for food, feed and industrial uses.
Course description New varieties have to meet current demands regarding yield, disease resistance, quality characteristics, salt or drought tolerance and suitability for sustainable plant production systems. Plant Breeding involves a variety of aspects, ranging from the molecular level to the population level and requires knowledge on the physiology, ecology and genetics of cultivated plants. The use of various molecular techniques contributes enormously to the rapid identification of genes for natural resistance and is essential for accelerating the selection process by marker-assisted breeding.
