UTILIZING NGS, OMIC AND GENE EDITING TECHNOLOGIES TO
PROGRESS PLANT RESEARCH
As part of our Next Generation Sequencing series of events, the 3rd Plant Genomics Congress USA, was held on September 14th-15th 2015 in St. Louis, Missouri. This is the sister meeting to the European congress held every May and the Asian conference whose agenda has just been released.
Attracting plant science experts working in areas including next generation sequencing, genomics, phenomics, proteomics, bioinformatics and data management, the conference examined the latest NGS platforms and Omic technologies suitable for progressing plant based research. The event focused 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.
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.
The conference provided an interactive networking forum to answer questions 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:
