Next generation plant breeders will need to utilize new technologies and techniques and to make optimal use of the enormous amounts of genotypic and phenotypic data produced by the Next Generation Technologies.
100 years ago in 1912 the Institute for Breeding of Field Crops was established as a unit of the State College for Agriculture, Horticulture and Silviculture (the predecessor of the Wageningen Agricultural University which is nowadays known as Wageningen University, part of Wageningen University and Research centre). Shortly after the name was changed in Instititute for Plant Breeding (IvP), and in 1997 in Laboratory of Plant Breeding. In 2005 the Laboratory of Plant Breeding merged with the PRI Business Biodiversity and Breeding of the DLO institute Plant Research International to form the expertise group Wageningen UR Plant Breeding.
