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.
