SELECTBIO is pleased to invite you to attend the third of our innovative online conferences.Using a pioneering new platform especially developed for scientific events, this event will be broadcast to your PC or mobile device.

During this event, the hottest topics in plant genomics will be addressed in a webinar-style auditorium with the opportunity for live Q&A at the end of each talk. Featuring an array of leading international speakers, this event aims to provide you with an insight into the latest developments in genomic selection of plants. Focus will be given to current efforts to enhance plant resistance to disease, as well as the optimisation of plant growth for both food and biofuel. Presentations will also highlight the use of next-generation technologies and bioinformatics.    

Benefits of attending this online event:
o    Opportunity to view posters, including an interactive session with the poster presenters.
o    Access to a virtual exhibit hall, enabling you to catch up with the latest technological developments in the industry via video, downloadable applications, brochures and interaction with booth staff.
o    View others in attendance and chat with them privately or in open forums.
o    No costs! No expensive flights, hotels or delegate fees.
o    Come & go as you please to fit around your busy life - you can attend at home or work using a PC or mobile device.
o    Please click here to view a short video and find out more about our new state-of-the-art online conferencing platform – then REGISTER FOR FREE!

Agenda Topics:
•    Enhancing Plant Resistance to Disease
•    Genomic Selection
•    Novel Technology for Plant Functional Genomics
•    Optimisation of Growth for Food and Biofuel
•    Plant Epigenomes
•    RNA Signaling and RNA Silencing in Plants
•    The Use of Microarrays and Bioinformatics

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.
