The 2nd Conference on Cereal Biotechnology and Breeding (CBB2) will be held at the Danubius Resort in Budapest, Hungary, from the 5th to the 7th of November 2013.
The conference will consider a variety of key topics, including biotic diseases of conventional- and pseudo-cereals, the effect of abiotic stresses in cereals, the physiology of cereals, cereal quality and its molecular basis, marker-assisted selection in cereals, cereal breeding via traditional and modern methods, and new cereal varieties.
