Global Engage is pleased to announce that the 6th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: USA will be held on October 1-2, 2018 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Co-located with the 3rd Partnerships in Biocontrol, Biostimulants & Microbiome
The event will bring together over 250 senior representatives from academia and industry. Featuring extended panels and interactive roundtable discussions, the meeting has been specially designed to facilitate collaboration and networking. Plus, your pass gives you full access to the co-located 3rd Partnerships in Biocontrol, Biostimulants & Microbiome.
With 50 talks to choose from, a drinks reception and 7 hours dedicated to networking, this meeting offers you an exceptional opportunity to interact with and learn from both the speakers and your peers. A dynamic exhibition room is available for you to discover technology providers showcasing their technologies and solutions.
Recognized around the world as the one of the leading NGS, omics and gene editing conferences focused exclusively on plants, the 2018 congress is not to be missed.
A Selection of 2017 Speakers included
A key focus of the event is facilitating collaboration between senior representatives from industry and academia. In terms of content, the conference will examine the latest NGS, ‘omic’ and gene editing technologies being used for progressing plant-based research, as well other aspects of plant genetics.
Plant research has transformed dramatically over the last few years as a result of revolutionary breakthroughs and cost reductions in sequencing technology. Successful sequencing of many plants, along with the improvement of biological data sets, have given plant scientists the tools and knowledge to make exciting developments to benefit agriculture. Novel gene editing technologies like CRISPR will take this research even further.
To keep up with these developments, this year the congress features expanded coverage of gene editing. Roundtable discussions, each led by an expert in areas such as Genome Editing; Regulation of Genome Editing; Genomic Selection; Sequencing Workflow and Industry-Academia Collaborations, will enable a more detailed examination of some of the newer trends.
