Plant Genomics Congress

13 May 2013 - 14 May 2013 - London, UK



Bookmark and Share


The Plant Genomics Congress features 35 expert speakers including: 

Richard Visser, Professor, Chair & Head Plant Breeding, Wageningen UR

Lukas Mueller, Professor, Plant Breeding and Genetics, Boyce Thompson Institute, Cornell University

Michael Bevan, Professor, Programme Leader, Cell & Developmental Biology, The John Innes Institute

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

The Congress Agenda will cover

NGS Technologies for Plant Research 

Bioinformatics, Data Management & Analysis 

Plant Genomic Case Studies
