“Developing gene editing, NGS and -omic technologies to advance plant research”
Following the success of the 2017 conference in Amsterdam in March, we are looking to host our 6th Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress Europe in Rotterdam on the 14th and 15th May 2018. We had great feedback from the 300+ attendees at this year’s meeting and are looking forward to growing and improving the event for next year including co-locating this meeting with our Partnerships in Biocontrol, Biostimulants, and Microbiome Congress Europe.
Plant research and its associated technologies have improved dramatically over the last 5 years as a result of the revolutionary breakthroughs including new gene editing technologies and reduction in the cost of sequencing. Many plants have now been successfully sequenced and a wide range of biological data sets made available. As a result, plant scientists are now more than ever making use of state of the art technology platforms to help explain biological principals, advance research and therefore enable benefits such as crop improvement / breeding etc. by harnessing the greater understanding of plant genomes and our conference is the perfect place to find out more about these methods and systems to advance your own research.
