Professor, Southern Cross University, Australia
This dedicated congress will explore the latest research seeking to understand and exploit the relationship between the plant and soil microbiomes. The agricultural benefits of this interaction of the microbiota found in the ground and plants, the role it plays in the cycling of nutrients, as well as the role microbiota play in disease and stress resistance are examined in depth.
“Invited speakers including those from abroad presented relevant and up-to-date research topics”
“Good venue, organisation, wide range of topics & scientists, and time for networking”
“Excellent speakers and content”
This meeting is co-located with the internationally renowned Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress. You will have full access to talks that explore how novel gene-editing technologies, CRISPR and other ‘omics technologies can be applied to your research. Plus, new for 2020 – machine learning and artificial intelligence in agriculture and big data information management and sharing.
This congress has been designed to create a collaborative environment in which you can engage with the speakers, sponsors and other delegation in attendance.
