Attendees Participation from members of the wider data science community who consider that they have relevant skills or experience that could be brought to bear on the areas listed, and who might be interested to be involved in future DSGs as challenge owners (Early Career Researchers) or as potential PIs, is particularly encouraged.
Add event to calendar vCal

This two day workshop will bring members of the UK wheat community and data science researchers together to identify suitable and exciting biological problems (with associated datasets) that could be further developed and made ready for a future wheat-focussed Data Study Group (DSG).

DSGs are week-long intensive interdisciplinary workshops which explore a small number of topics in greater depth to seed longer-term collaborations which could lead to joint publications or research proposals. More information here

Problems considered within scope for the workshop include: wheat genomics and genetics, phenotyping, breeding, GxExM interactions, agronomy, wheat pests and disease interactions, impacts of climate change, sustainability, and wheat as part of a healthy diet.

There are limited spaces available, so please complete this short questionnaire to register your interest, your expertise, and your reasons for wanting to participate. Please also provide a little information on the challenges or datasets that you would like to be considered, or that would be interesting to investigate.
