Coexistence Workshop in Washington DC

July 8, 2011

A workshop on The Science of Gene Flow in Agriculture and its Role in Co-existence will be held in Washington DC on September 7-8, 2011. Given the introduction of new crops for diverse traits, biofuels, and production systems aimed to capture markets with high purity standards, a comprehensive understanding of gene flow biology and control is crucial for co-existence to maintain seed purity in all sectors of the agricultural community. Experts from academia and industry will discuss the impact of gene flow in agriculture, and current and upcoming transgenic and non-transgenic technologies to control gene flow. Participants from the seed and plant production industries, the plant sciences community, and the government are invited.
