Bookmark and Share

The Genomics in Business conference is an international conference for executive management, entrepreneurs, start-ups, leading scientists and financial experts from the agro and biotech industry.

The bio-based economy is one of the fastest growing segments within the global economy today and holds tremendous potential for future economic growth. Plant biotechnology and industrial biotechnology play an increasing role in the development of bio-based products, energy and technologies.

The conference provides a prestigious business platform to meet and to exchange and create novel technologies, commercial applications and partnerships in the field of genomics in the agro and industrial biotech industries.

Main Topics

• Enabling technologies that drive the industry
• Business models in the agro - food industry
• The challenge of big data analysis
• From innovation to emerging companies
• Game-changing technologies and traits
• From biomass to sustainable products and energy
• IP and regulatory: opportunities and hurdles
• Business models in the bio-based industry

Ancestors of Land Plants Were Wired to Make the Leap to Shore
When the algal ancestor of modern land plants made the transition from aquatic environments to an inhospitable shore 450 million years ago, it changed the world by dramatically altering climate and setting the stage for the vast array of terrestrial life.
Photosynthesis Gene Could Help Crops Grow in Adverse Conditions
A gene that helps plants to remain healthy during times of stress has been identified by researchers at Oxford University.
Pancreatic Cancer Stem Cells Could be "Suffocated" by Anti-diabetic Drug
A new study shows that pancreatic cancer stem cells (PancSCs) are virtually addicted to oxygen-based metabolism, and could be “suffocated” with a drug already used to treat diabetes.
Scientists Learn How to Predict Plant Size
VIB and UGent scientists have developed a new method which allows them to predict the final size of a plant while it is still a seedling.
Scientists Home In On Origin Of Human, Chimpanzee Facial Differences
A study of species-specific regulation of gene expression in chimps and humans has identified regions important in human facial development and variation.
Nanoporous Gold Sponge Makes Pathogen Detector
Sponge-like nanoporous gold could be key to new devices to detect disease-causing agents in humans and plants, according to UC Davis researchers.
Genetic Manipulation for Algal Biofuel Production
Studies of the genes involved in oil synthesis in microalgae allow scientists to use a gene promoter to increase algal production of triacylglycerols, which in turn enhances potential biofuel yields.
Phosphorous Fertilizer
UD researchers identify behaviors of nanoparticle that shows promise as nanofertilizer.
Marijuana Genome Unraveled
A study by Canadian researchers is providing a clearer picture of the evolutionary history and genetic organization of cannabis, a step that could have agricultural, medical and legal implications for this valuable crop.
Grape Waste Could Make Competitive Biofuel
The solid waste left over from wine-making could make a competitive biofuel, University of Adelaide researchers have found.
