Utilizing Next Generation Sequencing as a Tool For Progressing Plant Research

Plant research has been dramatically transformed as a result of revolutionary breakthroughs and sequencing cost reductions. Plants including rice, papaya, maize, tomato, banana and barley have been successfully sequenced and a wide range of biological data sets made available.Plant scientists are making use of state of the art sequencing platforms to help explain biological principals, advance research to deliver benefits like crop improvement by harnessing the greater understanding of plant genomes.

Should you be an expert already using NGS for plant analysis or a researcher keen to invest in sequencing technology and looking to learn which platform suits your requirements - the conference will provide an interactive networking forum to answer your questions through a vibrant exhibition room full of technology providers showcasing their technologies and other solutions, expert led case study presentations and interactive Q&A panel discussions led by over forty expert practitioners
