8th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: USA

This year the Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress: USA (co-located with the 5th Partnerships in Biocontrol & Biostimulants Congress: USA and the Microbiome for Agriculture Congress: USA) is being held virtually. The platform we have chosen is designed to facilitate collaboration between the multiple stakeholders who attend this meeting. This will enable you to seamlessly network with key opinion leaders, investigators & researchers as you explore the latest developments in the field of plant genomics, gene editing, biocontrol, biostimulants and agricultural microbiome.

The 2021 congress will 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 consider key developments in gene-editing technologies such as CRISPR/Cas9 and TALEN and discuss its application in improving disease resistance, stress tolerance and crop yield.
