Global Engage is pleased to announce the Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: Asia will be held on 10 – 11 April, 2017.
The forum is moving from Malaysia to Hong Kong
And not only is the venue changing, the agenda is also being transformed.
Plant research has transformed dramatically over the last 5 years as a result of the revolutionary breakthroughs and reductions in cost of 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 confer benefits such as crop improvement / breeding etc. by harnessing the greater understanding of plant genomes.

Global Engage are pleased to announce, as part of their Next Generation Sequencing series of events, the 4th Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Asia Congress, which will be held on 10-11 April 2017 in Hong Kong. The successful event, which was attended by over 200 people last year, is part of our highly respected Plant Genomics Series which includes a European meeting each May and US meeting each September which attract another 500 delegates each year.
Attracting experts working in all areas of plant science, the event will examine the latest NGS platforms and omic technologies being used for progressing plant based research in aspects such as genome editing, crop trait development, epigenetics, phenotyping, plant microbiome, and disease resistance as well understanding tools to overcome bottlenecks and enable successful data analysis and management.
