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

Analysis of Dog Genome will Provide Insight into Human Disease
An important model in studying human disease, the non-coding RNA of the canine genome is an essential starting point for evolutionary and biomedical studies – according to a new study led by The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC).
Pathogen Takes Control of Gypsy Moth Populations
A new fungal pathogen is killing gypsy moth caterpillars and crowding out communities of pathogens and parasites that previously destroyed these moth pests.
Super Wheat Brought Closer to Reality
Scientists at the John Innes Centre (JIC) and The Sainsbury Laboratory (TSL) have pioneered a new gene-detecting technology which, if deployed correctly could lead to the creation of a new elite variety of wheat with durable resistance to disease.
Mechanism Behind Plant Withering Clarified
Reproducing the reaction in which harmful reactive oxygen species are created during plant photosynthesis allows researchers to confirm the mechanism behind plant withering.
Sequencing the Salmon Genome
Researchers have established a “human” quality sequence of the Atlantic salmon genome that is now available online.
Improved Path to Cassava Production
Researchers have studied the genetic diversity of cassava, highlighting strategies to improve breeding programmes.
New Online Tool Helps Predict Gene Expression in Plants
Scientists at The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) and The John Innes Centre have developed a free online tool that will help a global community of scientists understand more about important food crops.
