ACGG Research Projects

In Phase 1 of IRTG 2843, three overlapping cohorts of ACGG students start their 4-year PhD tenures in Germany in 2023, 2024 and 2025, respectively. These students will work on diverse, interacting  projects to apply biotechnology and data science in practical breeding programmes for sorghum and faba bean, as case studies for underutilised crops with a strong need for improved genetic gain. Data-based breeding methods, plant populations, genomics datasets, bioinformatics and genomic/phenomic prediction approaches being developed by associated students in these and other crops will feed into future ACGG projects. In parallel, aligned student cohorts and associated students also start complementary projects each year at UQ.
