Virtual Event: Advances in Plant Genomics 2015

August 25, 2015

Advances in Plant Genomics 2015 (APG 2015) will be using a platform especially developed for scientific events, where t opics in plant genomics will be addressed in a webinar-style auditorium with the opportunity for live Q&A at the end of each talk.

This event aims to provide an insight into the latest developments in genomic selection of plants. Focus will be given to current efforts to enhance plant resistance to disease, as well as the optimisation of plant growth for both food and biofuel. Presentations will also highlight the use of next-generation technologies and bioinformatics.
