Plant Genomics Congress - Asia

In February Global Engage held, as part of their Next Generation Sequencing series of events, the Plant Genomics Congress Asia in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  The event is the sister meeting to the American meeting which is held in September and the European Plant Genomics Congress which will take place again in London in May.

Feedback from this year's congress:

Co-hosted with the Malaysian Biotechnology Corporation (BiotechCorp) and attracting over 200 experts working in areas such as plant sciences, next generation sequencing, genomics, epigenetics, bioinformatics and data management, the conference examined the latest NGS platforms and technologies suitable for progressing plant based research as well as tools to enable successful analysis.  Presentations concentrated on, but were not limited to, regional crops such as rice, wheat, barley, maize, soybean, rapeseed, palm oil, etc in order to engage people from across the Asia Pacific region and far beyond.

Should you be a expert already using NGS for plant analysis 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 return on March 19-20, 2015.  This will build on this year's early successes and again 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 50+ strong speaker faculty.

The next agenda will go into development soon, but as a guide, 2014 divided into 4 conference tracks  examining topics covering:

1 - NGS Technologies for Plant Research
2 - Plant Genomic Case Studies
3 - Epigenetics Case Studies / Biofuel Research

4 -
Bioinformatics, Data Management & Analysis / Maize Case Studies
