Abstract

The Excellence in Breeding Platform is a CGIAR initiative to modernize breeding programs serving the developing world. A brief overview of the platform will be provided, with discussion focused on approaches to data management, cost effective genotyping, data analytics, and breeding strategies for the implementation of genomic selection. Collaborations with the Genomic Open-source Breeding Informatics Initiative (GOBii) on the implementation of genomic selection for CIMMYT Maize and ICRISAT Chickpea breeding programs will be presented and the path forward for routine implementation of genomic selection discussed.
