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

Stream 2 - Bioinformatics, Data Management & Analysis

Decoding the Genome of the Olive Tree
A team of scientists from three Spanish centers has sequenced, for the first time ever, the complete genome of the olive tree. This work will facilitate genetic improvement for production of olives and olive oil, two key products in the Spanish economy and diet.
Four Newly-Identified Genes Could Improve Rice
A Japanese research team have applied a method used in human genetic analysis to rice and rapidly discovered four new genes that are potentially significant for agriculture. These findings could influence crop breeding and help combat food shortages caused by a growing population.
What Makes a Good Scientist?
It’s the journey, not just the destination that counts as a scientist when conducting research.
