Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress: Asia


20th-21st Apr 2020


Taipei, Taiwan

7th Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress: Asia


In an effort to keep up with the accelerated human population growth, severe climate change and depleting food source, scientists and researchers are continuously revolutionising the field of plant genomics and gene editing. Technological advancements have substantially improved scientists’ ability to analyse and understand plant genome bringing about the generation of highly improved crops and plants while simultaneously addressing the challenges of global food security. Advancements such as CRISPR, TALENs and ‘Omics allow plant research to be done in half the time and with optimal results. Recently, artificial intelligence and machine learning has also paved its way into the world of plant science allowing for better analysis and prediction of plant genomic properties.  

Now that quality of crop germplasm is slowly replacing productivity rate as the most valuable property of crop production, these revolutionary technologies are paving the way to meet the goals of food and crop development. With access to over 50 presentations across 2 co-located events, these conferences will provide you with the opportunity to be updated on all the latest developments in the field of plant genomics, gene editing and agricultural microbiome developments.

This established meeting has a reputation for delivering exceptional networking and learning experiences for everyone working in plant science. It is co-located with the Microbiome for Agriculture Congress Asia and you have full access to the talks.

“Great focus on CRISPR technology and NGS” 
“Speaker calibre was very good; appreciated mix of industry and academic participants.”
“Networking was great” ” …made some good connections. Learned a lot”

Step 2: Delegate Information


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.
