8th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: Europe

Postilion Convention Centre WTC, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Wed 04 Mar 2020 - Thu 05 Mar 2020
04 Mar 09:00 - 05 Mar 18:00


This Congress will explore the latest developments in ‘omics’ technologies, breeding techniques and the application of AI in bioinformatics and phenotyping. Food security remains one of the key challenges facing the world in the 21st century, and with the growing global population, it is estimated that agriculture will have to become 25 to 70 percent more productive by 2050 to meet demand. Land-usage, yield and resistance to disease, drought and pests are all challenges that must be overcome if this is to be achieved.

Four conference tracks will explore how novel gene-editing technologies, CRISPR and other ‘omics’ technologies are being applied to specific crops such as wheat, barley, tomatoes potatoes and rice. Sessions will also explore the latest research in adaptation to environmental and biological stress, and advances in breeding techniques both traditional and new.

How you will benefit:

  • Keep up to date with the latest genomic research on key crop plants including wheat, barley and potato
  • Discover how research institutions and agri-biotech are using gene-editing technologies like CRISPR to advance their research
  • Explore advances in disease and stress resistance from multiple angles
  • Apply successful bioinformatic strategies to help overcome your plant phenotyping challenges
  • Examine the latest applications of artificial intelligence in the plant sciences
  • Review the regulatory landscape and keep up to date with the opinions on the 2018 ECJ ruling
  • Build on existing partnerships and create new collaborations across industry & academia
