Register to Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress: Asia (10% Discount for CBU Subscribers)April 3, 2019
Over the recent years, plant research and its associated technologies have improved drastically as a result of revolutionary breakthroughs such as new gene editing technology and the reduction in the cost of sequencing. As a result of many plants have now been successfully sequenced and a wide range of biological data-set made available, plant scientists are now making use of state of the art technology platforms to help explain biological principals, advance research and therefore enable benefits such as crop improvement and breeding techniques.
Meanwhile, the mass variety of microbes within the plant and soil are not only crucial in plant growth, yield & health, but also in pest management and fixation cycles. The crop quality improving technologies and the new pest control technologies are now becoming important tools to farmers.
This year, Global Engage, the University of Nottingham (Malaysia), and Crops for the Future, are pleased to announce that the congress is co-located with Microbiome for Agriculture Congress Asia 2019. This congress is part of our highly respected Plant Genomic Series held in Europe each May and the US every September each year.
Specific focus areas to be tackled in the congress include:
- Gene Editing Technologies & Tool Stage Development
- Plant Omics – Development, Application and Trends
- Next Generation Sequencing for Next Generation Plant Breeding
- Plant Bioinformatics and Data Management
- Plant and Soil Microbes Interaction
- Plant Microbiome and Agriculture
