Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress USA


24th-25th Oct 2023


Raleigh, NC

10th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress USA

In 2023, we explore novel strategies and developments in plant genomics and gene editing through a series of case studies and an examination of the latest scientific research. Leaders from academia and industry will guide us through the significant breakthroughs in gene-editing technologies such as CRISPR/Cas9, shedding light on their potential applications in improving disease resistance, stress tolerance, and crop yield. Additionally, some talks will cover the evolving landscape of computational approaches in studying plant science, along with updates on agricultural biotechnology regulations for genetically engineered organisms by USDA.

This meeting is co-located with the 7th Partnerships in Biocontrol, Biostimulants & Microbiome Congress: USA.

Some of the 2023 Speakers

How you will benefit

The congress is designed to create a collaborative environment in which you can engage with the speakers, sponsors, and other delegations in attendance. In 2023 you will:

  • Learn how the CRISPR-Cas12a system has been optimized for high efficiency genome editing in key crops including corn and soybean
  • Explore a novel root development regulator for enhanced crop productivity through improved water and nutrient uptakes
  • Examine the use of single cell biology to engineer stronger, healthier, and better crops
  • Learn about USDA’s agricultural biotechnology regulations for modified microbes
  • Discover POInT (the Polyploid Orthology Inference Tool) to understand genome evolution and duplicate gene loss after polyploidy
  • Debate the key considerations for gene edited crops in moving from science to market
  • Understand how nanoscale delivery of DNA-free tools for plant bioengineering offers new and powerful approaches to control plant development and to engineer plant physiology
  • Contribute to a special collection published by Springer
  • Give a poster presentation
  • Access the Partnerships in Biocontrol, Biostimulants & Microbiome Congress:USA

2023 Speakers


Attracting over 200 experts working in all areas of Plant Genomics and Gene Editing, this event examines how the latest developments are driving forward plant research.

Be part of a great networking meeting, which is PhD friendly. 

We are collaborating with the Springer journal Functional & Integrative Genomics to produce a special collection of Plant Genomics & Gene Editing research. Drawing on the conference themes, it is due for publication in 2024. Find out how to contribute here.

Event App
We have reduced waste by replacing printed documentation with an app. Make sure you have it downloaded to your devices in time for the meeting. Get Agorify on Google Play and Apple App Store.

You will have some great food choices while you are with us but now we have worked with the caterer to increase the proportion of plant-based items. We have also built a plan with the venue to avoid waste through how they serve meals and how any leftovers are processed. Our aim is that you have some great meals, whilst with us, but with less environmental impact by the time you leave.

An international meeting does involve travel but where it is practical, please consider more sustainable alternatives to flying. The app will also have a discussion space to arrange ride shares.
