Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress: Europe


4th-5th Mar 2020


Rotterdam, The Netherlands

8th Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress: Europe


Food security remains one of the key challenges facing the world in the 21st century, and with the growing global population it is estimated that agriculture will have to become 25 to 70 percent more productive by 2050 to meet demand. Land usage, yield and resistance to disease, drought and pests are all challenges that must be overcome if this is to be achieved.

With over 50 presentations across 6 tracks, this conference provides the opportunity to keep up to date with the latest developments tackling these issues. Sessions will explore the impact of genomic and gene editing tools on the yields of wheat, barley, potatoes and rice as well as their adaptation to environmental and biological stress, and advances in breeding techniques and phenotyping. The conference will also examine the role of bioinformatics as well as the latest advances in artificial intelligence and its application across agriculture.

Now entering its 8th year, this established meeting has a reputation for delivering exceptional networking and learning experiences for everyone working in plant science.

“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”
