Digital Twin for Harnessing Genetic Wealth in Crop Wild Relatives


Online, 18 January 2024

Crop Wild Relatives can transform sustainable agriculture by harnessing their hidden genetic potential through Digital Twinning. Discover how developing crop varieties with better nutrition, higher yields, and increased disease resistance can address global food insecurity and boost food production.

The “Digital Twin for Harnessing Genetic Wealth in Crop Wild Relatives” webinar will demonstrate the use of MoDGP (Modelling the Distribution of Germplasms of Interest) and FIGS (Focused Identification of Germplasm Strategy) tools with digital twinning to identify and utilise genetic resources for plant breeding, conservation, and policymaking. Digital twinning facilitates data integration, model updates, uncertainty analysis, and alerts for desirable traits, making it a groundbreaking approach for unlocking the transformative potential of genetic resources.

Crop Wild Relatives is a central focus of the BioDT project and will be highlighted as a prominent use case during the webinar. Don’t miss this opportunity to dive into the future of sustainable agriculture and learn how digital twinning can unveil the untapped genetic potential.
