Kingkey Palace Hotel
Shenzhen, Guangdong, China,
This is the first specialized conference of plant pathogenomics in the field of genomics and genetics. The meeting is jointly organized by BGI (www.genomics.cn), China Agriculture University and The Sainsbury Laboratory (TSL). Over 200 clinicians and scientists from all over the world, experts in the field of plant disease, are expected to attend this conference aiming at developing new and improved strategies for the genetic investigation of plant pathogenomics.
As a world-class research institution, BGI has established its own technical platforms based on large-scale genome sequencing, efficient bioinformatics analyses, and innovative genetic plant pathogenomics initiatives. China Agriculture University is a Research-Oriented University, which is in the chairmanship of 12 items in the National Key Basic Research Program ("973 Plan"). Three disciplines, agricultural science, botany and zoology, environmental ecology, are on the top 1% of the world. The Sainsbury Laboratory (TSL), is a world-leading institution in the field of plantÃ¢â‚¬â€œmicrobe interactions, and is actively involved in several plant pathogen genome sequencing projects.
We are confident that your active participation will ensure the great success of this meeting, contributing to the advancement of the plant pathogenic microorganisms and insect pests, not only in China, but throughout the world.
