7th Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress: Europe

Developing gene editing, NGS, and Omic technologies to advance plant research

Global Engage is pleased to announce the 7th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: Europe, taking place 21st-22nd May 2019, in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. This event is part of our widely-regarded Plant Genomics Series which includes an Asian and US meeting each year.

Attracting over 300 experts working in all areas of plant science, this event will examine the latest in gene editing methods for plant genomics research. CRISPR/Cas9 case studies and the very best strategies for plant genome engineering will be presented by industry leaders, experts, and pioneering academics at the forefront of plant research. Developments in gene editing, NGS, and omic technologies will all be explored for crop trait development, disease resistance, epigenetics, plant breeding, and more. Tracks dedicated to plant & soil microbiomes, and the importance of plant phenotyping in the context of bioinformatics challenges, will encourage a holistic approach to plant research; the former will focus on identifying microbes to enhance crop productivity & disease resistance, while the latter will showcase the best tools for overcoming bioinformatics bottlenecks, applicable to plant research across the board. We will also be looking to examine the impact of the ECJ’s latest interpretation of GMO regulations, and what this means for the future of gene editing research, addressing issues such as how to navigate the new legislation, and considering what alternative strategies & technologies there might be for progressing plant genomics.

Testimonials

What our delegates say about the conference

100% relevant

Usually when you go to conferences, maybe 25% of the talks will be relevant, here 100% are relevant.

PhD, CEO, NRGene

Fantastic

The plant genomics conference is pretty exciting. I regularly participate in the plant and animal genome conference in San Diego, compared to that this conference is more focused, has a collection of interesting speakers and cutting edge technologies, not only in genomics but also in imaging and genetic engineering. This is a fantastic conference.

Henry Daniell

Professor & Director of Translation Research, University of Pennsylvania

Covers all aspects

It was a great cross-section of plant science, it included just about all aspects of plant genomics. It included the whole spectrum of science, from research, through to breeding, production, and applications and just top notch talks throughout the day. We’ve found this congress to be a great place to stay connected to the thought leaders across the spectrum of applications.

Mike Thompson

Director, Market Development, Illumina

New technologies

For me the most interesting part is learning about the new technologies presented here, learning about the genomic research going on because it’s an essential part of my studies. 

Ksenia Krasileva

Group Leader, The Genome Analysis Centre

Very Effective

It was indeed a very well-organized and effective conference for us (Diagenode s.a)
