We are pleased to say that this year's Plant Genomics Congress, which was held in May was a great success.  Attracting around 300 experts in the field from industry and academia and with overwhelmingly positive reviews and speaker feedback.   This successful event will be followed by the sister meetings in Malaysia (see the Asian Plant Genomics Congress) and the USA (see Plant Genomics Congress: USA ).

Feedback from previous attendees:

Attracting experts working in all areas of plant sciences, next generation sequencing, genomics, epigenetics, bioinformatics and data management, the conference will examine the latest NGS platforms and technologies suitable for progressing plant based research in aspects such as molecular marker development, crop/ trait improvement, breeding, hybridization, conservation, evolution studies and pathology.  Presentations concentrate on, but are not limited to plant, crop and forestry research ranging from wheat, barley, maize and rice to potato, tomato, arabidopsis, spruce and ash in order to attract delegates across the Europe and beyond.

Should you already be using NGS for plant research, with a desire to extend your knowledge, a researcher keen to invest in sequencing technology and looking to learn which platform suits your requirements or looking to find solutions to your data analysis or management bottlenecks  - 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 from a 60 strong speaker faculty examining topics on six separate tracks covering:

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

Day 2 Stream 1 - Bioinformatics, Data Management & Analysis
Forestry Research Case Studies
Day 2 Stream 2 - Epigenetic / DNA Methylation Case Studies
Genomic Evolution Case Studies
Day 2 Stream 3 - Plant Genomics Case Studies
