Global Engage is pleased to announce as part of their Plant Science series, the 5th Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress Europe, which will be held on 16-17 March 2017 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The successful event which frequently attracts over 250 attendees is the sister meeting to both the US Congress and Asian Congress which take place each year in September and April respectively.
Feedback from previous attendees:
Attracting experts working in all areas of plant science, the event will examine the latest in gene editing methods as well as exploring developments in NGS and omic technologies being used for progressing plant based research in aspects such as crop trait development, epigenetics, phenotyping, plant microbiome, and disease resistance as well understanding tools to overcome bottlenecks and enable successful data analysis and management.
Presentations concentrate on, but are not limited to plant, crop and forestry research ranging from wheat, barley, maize and rice to potato, tomato, Arabidopsis, biofuels and various fruits in order to attract delegates across Europe and beyond.
Plant research and its associated technologies have improved dramatically over the last 5 years as a result of the revolutionary breakthroughs including new gene editing technologies and reduction in the cost of sequencing. Many plants have now been successfully sequenced and a wide range of biological data sets made available. As a result, plant scientists are now more than ever making use of state of the art technology platforms to help explain biological principals, advance research and therefore enable benefits such as crop improvement / breeding etc. by harnessing the greater understanding of plant genomes.
Should you be either an expert already using gene editing, NGS, or other genomic technologies for plant analysis with a desire to extend your knowledge, or a researcher keen to invest in sequencing / omic technology and looking to learn which platform/technology best 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, interactive Q&A panel discussions, and two roundtable sessions examining various topics through six separate tracks:
