Biometris is the fully integrated collaboration of PRI Biometrie and the Mathematical and Statistical Methods Group. Statistical and mathematical methods are being developed for the quantification of biological processes and processes in our living environment, both for companies and academics, to explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life. This is done at all levels, from gene to ecosystem and from product to production chain. Our goal is to bring quantitative methods to life!

We were glad to welcome you to the XVIth Meeting of the EUCARPIA Section Biometrics in Plant Breeding. This meeting hosted scientific presentations on the development and application of quantitative methods and strategies in plant breeding. A major topic was the use of genome-wide marker data to predict phenotypic performance, coined “genomic prediction”, in plants and crops with invited speakers from human and animal genetics. Furthermore, the meeting provided great opportunities to talk to leading experts and to meet researchers and breeders of other companies and organizations.Read more
