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

Agenda

Should you be either an expert already using NGS for plant analysis with a desire to extend your knowledge or for researchers keen to invest in sequencing / omic technology and looking to learn which platform suits your requirements – the conference will provide an interactive networking forum to answer your queries through a vibrant exhibition room full of technology providers showcasing their technologies and other solutions, expert led case study presentations, and interactive Q&A panel discussions examining topics through four separate tracks. The scope of the conference is reflected in the keynote presentations.

  • Bringing science and market trends together via genome-enabled breeding, John Manners, Director, CSIRO Agriculture and Food, Australia
  • The Genetics of Plant-Microbe Interactions, Jeff Bennetzen, Giles Professor, University of Georgia, USA and 1000 Talents Professor, Kunming Institute of Botany, China
  • Setaria viridis: accelerating gene discovery in panicoid crops, Tom Brutnell, Principal Investigator and Director of the Enterprise Institute of Renewable Fuels, Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, USA
  • Targeted breeding applications of CRISPR-Cas technology for Asian markets, Neal Gutterson, Vice President of R&D, DuPont Pioneer, USA

The first European Congress of Biotechnology in Interlaken, Switzerland, in 1978 marked the inauguration of the European Federation of Biotechnology (EFB).  In 2018, we are delighted to welcome you back to Switzerland to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the longest running biotechnology congress in Europe.  Between Lake Geneva and surrounding mountains, ECB2018 will be held in the beautiful and vibrant city of Geneva.

EFB began as a rather small group of working parties from different European countries.  Their interests ranged from fermentation technology to the public perception of biotechnology, applied microbiology and genetics, downstream processing and measurement and control. Forty years later, EFB is now open to all who share our mission of promoting the safe, sustainable and ethical use of biological systems for the benefit of mankind. The current 30,000 personal members, who span the world from Latin America to China, Korea and Japan, is also a reflection of the success of recent EFB congresses.

About Conference

Conference Series Ltd conferences, “2nd International Conference on Plant Physiology, Pathology and Biotechnology”during September 16-17, 2019 in Amsterdam, Netherlands aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers, specialists and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Plant Physiology, Pathology and Biotechnology. It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss trends, the most recent innovations, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of Plant Science, Plant Physiology, Pathology and Biotechnology.

Conference Series Ltd aims are to engage new audiences to participate in activities on the day Plant Physiology, Pathology and Biotechnology 2019. Of course, we also want to reach existing followers of plant physiology social media accounts, and to expand the global reach. Finally, this will be a great opportunity to explore as new science communication tool. We are now looking for people to contribute, and to help us make plants ‘go viral’!

Why to attend?

With members from around the world focused on learning about Plant Physiology and its advances; this is your best opportunity to reach the largest assemblage of participants from the Plant Physiology, Pathology and Biotechnology.
