UTILIZING NEXT GENERATION SEQUENCING AS A TOOL FOR
PROGRESSING
PLANT RESEARCH


Global Engage are pleased to announce as part of their Next Generation Sequencing series of events the 3rd Plant Genomics Congress, which will be held on May 11-12, 2015 in London, England.  The successful event which was attended by over 275 attendees last year is the sister meeting to both the
US Congress and Asian Congress which take place each year in September and March respectively.

Feedback from previous attendees:




Attracting experts working in all areas of plant sciences including next generation sequencing, genomics, phenomics, proteomics, epigenetics, bioinformatics and data management, the conference will examine the latest NGS platforms and Omic technologies suitable for progressing plant based research.

The event focuses on aspects such as molecular marker development, breeding, crop/ trait improvement, disease/stress resistance, evolution studies and pathology 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 has transformed dramatically over the last 5 years as a result of the revolutionary breakthroughs and reduction in cost in 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 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 NGS for plant analysis with a desire to extend your knowledge or a 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 & interactive Q&A panel discussions examining topics through six separate tracks: 

Day 1 Stream 1 -
NGS / Omic Technologies for Plant Research
Day 1 Stream 2 - Plant Genomic Case Studies (Cereals)
Day 1 Stream 3 - RNA Seq Case Studies

Day 2 Stream 1 - A) Bioinformatics, Data Analysis & Management;
B) Young Investigators Flash Presentations
Day 2 Stream 2 - Plant Genomic Case Studies
Day 2 Stream 3 - A) Epigenetic / DNA Methylation Case Studies;
B) Genomic Evolution Case
