Plant Genomes & Biotechnology: From Genes to Networks

The aims of this meeting are to review progress in genomics-enabled analyses of the major plant groups and their enemies under the motto "Plant Genomics:What's Next?", with topics ranging from evolutionary studies, new approaches to plant breeding including phenomics and genetical genomics, to next-generation cell biology. The conference will feature a mix of invited speakers drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences.

The format of the meeting will include six oral sessions and one poster session. Each oral session will include invited speakers and speakers selected from submitted abstracts. For this reason, abstracts from accomplished junior and senior investigators are warmly invited.

Topics Include:
Next-generation Evolutionary Biology
Next-generation Plant Breeding
New Plant Genomes and Models
Omics Integration
Next-generation Plant-Pathogen Interactions
Next-generation Cell Biology
