Plant & Fungi Genetics

Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress March 2017

16th-17th Mar 2017, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

This leading Plant Genomics and Gene Editing networking event has moved from London to Amsterdam in 2017.

As well as changing the location, the agenda has been completely remodelled in order to provide you and your peers with an outstanding learning and networking experience. For example, this year the programme incorporates round table discussions where, you, together with your peers, can debate the challenges and tease out the opportunities to be found in: the plant microbiome; sequencing workflow; and genomic selection to name but a few. In addition, there are extended panel discussions to allow you a more interactive exchange of ideas with the speakers across a range of topics. And for younger plant scientists, as well as opportunities to give poster presentations, the agenda includes early career researchers who will present on their work in a number of novel areas.

These developments add to a meeting that is renowned for the quality of the scientific presentations being delivered by over 70 speakers from industry and academia.


29th Fungal Genetics Conference March 2017

March 14 to March 19, Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, California
The 29th Fungal Genetics Conference promotes the dissemination of the latest research on all aspects of fungal genetics with a focus on filamentous fungi and encourages communication and collaboration between researchers interested in genomics, gene regulation, cell biology and development, evolutionary biology, fungal-host interactions and biotechnology.

The latest advances in fungal biology are presented at plenary, concurrent and poster sessions. Presentations for the concurrent and poster sessions are programmed from submitted abstracts. Be sure to submit an abstract by December 8 to be included in this important meeting. You will have the opportunity to present your research and get feedback from a broad audience of scientists.


Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress: Asia April 2017

10th-11th Apr 2017, Hong Kong, Eaton Hotel

Global Engage is pleased to announce the Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: Asia will be held on 10 – 11 April, 2017.

The forum is moving from Malaysia to Hong Kong

Plant research has transformed dramatically over the last 5 years as a result of the revolutionary breakthroughs and reductions in cost of sequencing. Many plants have been successfully sequenced and a wide range of biological data sets made available. Plant scientists are therefore making use of state of the art sequencing platforms to help explain biological principals, advance research and confer benefits such as crop improvement / breeding etc. by harnessing the greater understanding of plant genomes.


19th International Conference on Fungal Genetics June 2017

June 21 - 22, 2017, Venice, Italy

The ICFG 2017: 19th International Conference on Fungal Genetics aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Fungal Genetics. It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of Fungal Genetics.


Call for Contributions

All honorable authors are kindly encouraged to contribute to and help shape the conference through submissions of their research abstracts, papers and e-posters. Also, high quality research contributions describing original and unpublished results of conceptual, constructive, empirical, experimental, or theoretical work in all areas of Fungal Genetics are cordially invited for presentation at the conference. The conference solicits contributions of abstracts, papers and e-posters that address themes and topics of the conference, including figures, tables and references of novel research materials.

Conference Proceedings

All submitted conference papers will be blind peer reviewed by three competent reviewers. The post conference proceedings will be abstracted and indexed in the International Science Index , and submitted to be indexed in the Google Scholar, Scopus and Thomson Reuters. The conference abstracts and proceedings book, CD and certificate of presentation will be distributed to participants at the conference registration desk.


7th World Summit on Plant Genomics July 2017

July 03-05, 2017 Bangkok, Thailand

The theme of Plant Genomics 2017, ‘Frontiers in plant genomics: From discovery to applications’, covers both theoretical and practical areas of plant science. Fields of interest include, but are not limited to: gene structure and function, molecular biology and genetics, tissue culture and biotechnology, crop breeding and disease resistance, and plant stem cells.

Plant Genomics 2017 will be a valuable and important platform for inspiring international and interdisciplinary exchange at the forefront of basic and applied research on plant science. The Conference will strive to offer plenty of networking opportunities, providing you with the opportunity to meet and interact with the leading scientists and researchers, friends and colleagues as well as sponsors and exhibitors.

The conference itself will be held at Bangkok, one of most modern cities in Asia. Bangkok offers prestige cultural, historical and indigenous attractions, family oriented facilities, varied shopping opportunities and more. We are sure that you will enjoy your stay in Bangkok apart from gaining knowledge and innovation from the conference.


3rd Global Summit on Plant Science - Plant Genetics and epigenetics- Aug 2017

August 07-09, 2017 Rome, Italy
Transgenes appear to be particularly sensitive to epigenetic variation which can lead to transgene silencing, i.e. the complete or partial inactivation of transgene expression. Plants are ideal model systems to study the influence of changing environmental conditions on epigenetic patterns. We are especially interested to understand how certain genomic regions become targets for epigenetic modification and how environmental stress affects epigenetic gene regulation. Our applied work investigates how transgene silencing can be prevented and how epigenetic variation can be exploited for novel breeding strategies

Plant Genome Evolution Oct. 2017

1-3 October 2017 | Meliá Sitges, Sitges (near Barcelona), Spain

For the 2017 meeting, we are trying to put together an even more exciting programme focused on plant genomes of green algae, lower and higher plants, natural variation, domestication, epigenetics, polyploidy, and systems biology, of course all with a strong emphasis on evolution and evolutionary aspects.

This fourth PGE meeting will present the unique opportunity to meet and discuss with colleagues, get updated on the newest developments and insights in plant genome evolution, and will provide unique possibilities to network and discuss collaborations. We are delighted to announce that Prof. Ed Buckler (USDA-ARS at Cornell University) has agreed to deliver the plenary lecture on Sunday, opening the meeting.
