4th Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress : Asia
Feb 26 @ 3:21 pm – 4:21 pm

Global Engage is pleased to announce the Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: Asia will be held on 10 – 11 April, 2017.

The forum is moving from Malaysia to Hong Kong

And not only is the venue changing, the agenda is also being transformed.

Plant research has transformed dramatically over the last 5 years as a result of the revolutionary breakthroughs and reductions in cost of sequencing. Many plants have been successfully sequenced and a wide range of biological data sets made available. Plant scientists are therefore making use of state of the art sequencing platforms to help explain biological principals, advance research and confer benefits such as crop improvement / breeding etc. by harnessing the greater understanding of plant genomes.

The congress package includes:

  • Full access to all conference sessions
  • Lunches and refreshments
  • Access to exhibition area
  • Networking drinks reception
  • Conference workbook

OBJECTIVES           GENERAL SCHEDULE

About Program

The Pan-Asia Farmers Exchange Program or the FX Program is a platform of knowledge sharing and exchange on agricultural plant biotechnology.

It brings together farmers and other stakeholders from Asia to learn about plant biotechnology through first-hand experience by visiting plant biotech commercial farms and R&D biotech facilities; and interacting with farmers, scientists, media and policymakers.

The FX Program has been held annually since 2007. The 9th FX Program was held Mar 2-7 in the Philippines. The CropLife Asia, CropLife Philippines and the Biotechnology Coalition of the Philippines have organized the nine editions of the FX program.

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
