Plant Genomics Congress

13 May 2013 - 14 May 2013 - London, UK



Bookmark and Share


The Plant Genomics Congress features 35 expert speakers including: 

Richard Visser, Professor, Chair & Head Plant Breeding, Wageningen UR

Lukas Mueller, Professor, Plant Breeding and Genetics, Boyce Thompson Institute, Cornell University

Michael Bevan, Professor, Programme Leader, Cell & Developmental Biology, The John Innes Institute

In the last few years there have been significant cost reductions and advances in next generation sequencing technologies that genomic specialists must keep abreast of developments and increasingly manage an explosion in data. This congress has been designed to meet this need by combining a panel of exceptional speakers with exhibitors from leading suppliers, one-to-one meetings and a drinks reception, in order to provide a unique networking opportunity during the congress breaks and evening reception. 

The Congress Agenda will cover

NGS Technologies for Plant Research 

Bioinformatics, Data Management & Analysis 

Plant Genomic Case Studies

“Amazing Protein Diversity” Discovered in Maize
The genome of the corn plant – or maize, as it’s called almost everywhere except the US – “is a lot more exciting” than scientists have previously believed. So says the lead scientist in a new effort to analyze and annotate the depth of the plant’s genetic resources.
Invasive Species Could Cause Billions in Agriculture Damages
Invasive insects and pathogens could be a multi-billion-dollar threat to global agriculture and developing countries may be the biggest target, according to a team of international researchers.
Genetic Research Can Significantly Improve Drug Development
With drug development costs topping $1.2bn (£850 million) to get a single treatment to the point it can be sold and used in the clinic, could genetic analysis save hundreds of millions of dollars?
What Makes a Good Scientist?
It’s the journey, not just the destination that counts as a scientist when conducting research.
Scoliosis Linked to Disruptions in Spinal Fluid Flow
A new study in zebrafish suggests that irregular fluid flow through the spinal column brought on by gene mutations is linked to a type of scoliosis that can affect humans during adolescence.
More Research Needed to Ensure Gene Drive Safety
Gene-Drive modified organisms are not ready to be released into environment a new report calls for more research and robust assessment.
Genetic Basis of Petunia Variation Uncovered
A large international team of researchers, including scientists from Wageningen University, have now sequenced the entire genome of two different wild petunia species, and published this in the important scientific journal Nature Plants.
Genetically Engineered Crops Are Safe
Distinction between genetic engineering and conventional plant breeding becoming less clear, says new report on GE crops.
Breeding More Climate Resilient Brassicas
Scientists at the John Innes Centre have discovered how a gene that helps determine plant flowering time could help us breed better brassicas in the face of climate change.
One Step Closer To Developing Non-Allergenic 'Super' Peanuts
Scientists from The University of Western Australia have joined a global research team that have identified genes in peanuts that when altered will be able to prevent an allergic response in humans.
