UTILIZING NGS, OMIC AND GENE EDITING TECHNOLOGIES TO
PROGRESS PLANT RESEARCH
Building on the successes of our global Plant Genomics series of events, Global Engage is pleased to announce the 4th Plant Genomics Congress USA, which will be held on September 12-13, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Last year’s successful event attracted over 170 attendees, and sister meetings in Europe and Asia draw over 200 attendees. The event will be co-located with the Global Biocontrol & Biostimulants Congress 2016.
Attracting scientists working in all areas of plant research, including molecular marker development, breeding, crop improvement, the plant/soil microbiome, disease/stress resistance, evolution studies and gene editing techniques, the conference will examine the latest strategies, technologies and research techniques utilizing NGS, ‘omic’ technologies, phenotyping, epigenetics, bioinformatics and data analysis to further plant research. Presentations from 20+ international and regional experts will concentrate on, but are not limited to, regional and model crops such as wheat, corn, barley, sorghum, arabidopsis and soybean.
Plant research has transformed dramatically over the last few years as a result of revolutionary breakthroughs and cost reductions in sequencing technology. Successful sequencing of many plants, along with the improvement of biological data sets, have given plant scientists the tools and knowledge to make exciting developments to benefit agriculture. Novel gene editing technologies like CRISPR will take this research even further.
Should you be an expert using NGS / ‘omic’ / gene editing technologies for plant analysis, a scientist working on plant or soil microbiology, or a researcher hoping to invest in sequencing technology, the conference will be an excellent opportunity to learn, share, discuss and engage with the most current plant genomics research and technology. During the two-day conference, there will be networking breaks to promote interaction with your peers, expert led case study presentations, a dynamic exhibition room filled with technology providers showcasing their technologies and solutions, and interactive Q&A panel discussions examining key issues.
