8th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: Europe
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.
