Designed for plant scientists and specialists. Combining exceptional speakers with exhibitors from leading suppliers showcasing their technologies & other solutions, one-to-one meetings & a drinks reception. 

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

Hear 50 international and regional speakers cover:

Day 1 

Stream 1 - NGS Technologies for Plant Research  

Stream 2 - Plant Genomic Case Studies: RNA, ChIP-Seq; Whole Genome Seq Targeted Sequencing / Sequence enrichment

Day 2 

Stream 1 - Plant Genomic Case Studies & Epigenetics, miRNA, & ncRNAs Research in Plants
