6th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: USA

UTILIZING NGS, OMICS & GENE EDITING AS TOOLS FOR PROGRESSING PLANT RESEARCH

Building on the successes of our global Plant Science series of events, Global Engage is pleased to announce the co-located 6th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress USA and 3rd Partnerships in Biocontrol, Biostimulants & Microbiome USA.

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 ofbiological 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. This conference will examine the latest NGS, ‘omic’ and gene editing technologies being used for progressing plant-based research,aswell other gene-focused aspects of plant science.

A selection of 2018 speakers include:

Agenda

This comprehensive two-day congress will provide you with an exceptional environment in which to explore the application of novel gene-editing technologies, CRISPR and other ‘omics technologies.

An extended panel discussion will assess the issues arising from gene editing regulation; while nine roundtable discussions, led by experts, will enable a deeper investigation of subjects that include genomic selection, sequencing workflow and adapting to the challenges of climate change, to name just three.
