May 19 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

SEARCA, in collaboration with the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA), is pleased to invite you and your colleagues to the following seminar at the SEARCA headquarters, UPLB Campus, Los Baños, Laguna:

 Global Status of Commercialized Biotech/GM Crops in 2016

by Dr. Paul S. Teng

Chair of the Board, ISAAA and Senior Fellow, SEARCA

 19 May 2017 (Friday), Drilon Hall, 3:00 p.m.

 

 The SEARCA Agriculture & Development Seminar Series (ADSS) and its special seminars are open to the public.  It is meant to encourage the presentation and discussion of development and research issues, as well as their implications for agricultural and rural development. Through the ADSS, SEARCA proactively contributes to having a vibrant scientific exchange within, and even beyond, the Los Baños Science Community.

International Colloquium on Biotechnology & Industrial Revolution (BIOTECH-2017)
Nov 27 – Nov 28 all-day

With the theme “Exploring the innovate thinkers for Biotech Industrial Revolution”, the BIOTECH 2017 will be an arena for researchers, Bio-technologists, Bio scientists, Policy makers, young individuals and industry experts to come together, share experiences, discuss research findings and acquire the desired knowledge for practical exercise.

BIOTECH 2017 will enable everyone to experience more networking opportunities with over 200 conference participants from more than 30 countries, great insights from world reputed keynotes, technical sessions with extensive knowledge, high quality conference experience specially designed by Innovate conferences and the opportunity to discover Australia under great hospitality.

The conference will provide a forum for interaction among attendees on Biotechnology, Biotech engineers, Biotech Scientists, Recombinant DNA technologists, Biotechnology Professors and other bio –tech industrial leaders. It will create an interface among professionals, academicians and experts in the fields of Biotechnology.

This global meeting will assemble the world leaders in the expanding fields related to the isolation, research and development of DNA techniques. We are all acutely aware of the growing crisis associated with biotech industry. Thus it is timely that this meeting will enable you to meet and discuss critical issues.

The present efforts to hold the Innovate Biotech 2017 Conference in Brisbane, Australia is based on our decision to involve Global academic faculty members, Biotech representatives and students. In this mega event in Brisbane, representatives in both industry and academia work with us to create a more interactive association in the field of Biotechnology & Industrial Revolution.

The Innovate Biotech 2017 Conference is a hub that covers the core aspects of Biotechnology including “Animal Agriculture, Food Innovations, Fermentation technologies, Genomics and Proteomics, Healthcare and pharmaceuticals”

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, we 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.

Join us in Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA on 29-30th July 2019

2nd Plant Sciences Symposium @ SEARCA
Oct 25 all-day

About the Symposium

The Plant Sciences Symposium is primarily a student organized symposia series sponsored by Corteva Agriscience™, an agriculture division of DowDupont™, that is held at universities and research institutes worldwide. The objective of the Symposium is to promote the interaction between scientists and experts of both public and private sectors. In October 2019, the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) will host the Plant Science Symposium in Los Baños, Philippines.

Theme

The theme of the symposium is “Agri-food value chain: Challenges and Opportunities“.

Focusing on five levels of the value chain: 1) Agri-input manufacturer, 2) Farmers, 3) Food manufacturer and traders, 4) Food retailers, and 5) Consumers.

About the Host

IRRI is the world’s premier research organization dedicated to reducing poverty and hunger through rice science, improving the health and welfare of rice farmers and consumers, and protecting rice-growing environments for future generations. It is an independent, nonprofit, research and educational institute, founded in 1960 by the Ford and Rockefeller foundations with support from the Philippine government. The Institute is also a part of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), a global partnership that unites organizations engaged in research for a food-secured future.

The Symposium is organized by the Association of Fellows, Scholars, Trainees, and Residents of IRRI (AFSTRI) which is a scholar-based community responsible for trainings, sports, and cultural activities for all students, research scholars, postdoctoral fellows, and trainees at IRRI.

About the Co-host

The Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA) is one of the 26 specialist institutions of the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO). Established in 1966 and hosted by the Philippine government, SEARCA is mandated to strengthen institutional capacities in agricultural and rural development in Southeast Asia through graduate education and institutional development, research and development, and knowledge management. It serves the 11 SEAMEO member countries, namely, Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste, and Vietnam.
