What our delegates say about the conference

Cutting edge topics

The networking I would say is the most useful aspect and also learning of those areas that are at the cutting edge that I wouldn’t know about because I’m not a specialist in that area.

Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress: Asia

Well organised

I think the organisation and the quality of the delegates was very good.

Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress: Asia

Informative and helpful

The information was very informative and helpful. I will suggest this event to all of my friends. 

Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress: Asia

Interactive conference

I really enjoyed the interaction with the other delegates of the conference, and learning a lot about a new generation of technologies, especially third generation sequencing technologies.
