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 USA, which will be held on September 14th-15th 2015 in St. Louis, Missouri.  The successful event which attracted over 180 attendees last year is the sister meeting to the European congress which had over 285 registered attendees in May and the Asian meeting which drew 200 experts this March.

Attracting plant science experts working in areas including next generation sequencing, genomics, phenomics, proteomics, 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 and trait improvement, stress resistance, bioenergy, 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, regional crops including wheat, maize, barley, soybean, rice, cassava etc. in order to attract delegates from across the US region 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 and crops 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 enable benefits such as crop improvement 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 for researchers keen to invest in sequencing 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 solutions, expert led case study presentations and interactive Q&A panel discussions examining topics through four separate tracks:

Day 1 Track 1 – NGS/ Omic Technologies for Plant Research
Day 1 Track 2 – Plant Genomic Case Studies
Day 2 Track 1 – Bioinformatics, Data Analysis and Management
Day 2 Track 2 – Part A) Plant Genomic Case Studies;   Part B) Biofuel Research
