The 5th Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Asia Congress will be held on the 26th and 27th of March 2018. In 2018 the meeting is moving to Bangkok and will focus on the differing needs and circumstances of plant genomics and researchers across the Asia Pacific. In addition to focusing on the science and research to improve crops, the challenges & opportunities presented by urbanization, international trade, climate change and healthcare are also examined.
2018 Speakers Included:
Professor, Forestry and Agricultural Biotechnology Institute (FABI), University of Pretoria, South Africa
Plant research and its associated technologies have improved drastically over the recent years as a result of revolutionary breakthroughs such as new gene editing technology and the reduction in the cost of sequencing. Many plants have now been successfully sequenced and a wide range of biological datasets made available. As a result, plant scientists are now making use of state of the art technology platforms to help explain biological principals, advance research and therefore enable benefits such as crop improvement and breeding techniques.
Should you be either an expert already using gene editing, NGS, or other genomic technologies for plant analysis with a desire to extend your knowledge, or a researcher keen to invest in sequencing / omic technology and looking to learn which platform/technology best suits your requirements – the conference will provide an interactive networking forum to answer your queries through a vibrant exhibition room full of technology providers showcasing their technologies and other solutions, expert led case study presentations, roundtable discussions and panel discussions over four separate tracks.

The networking I would say is the most useful aspect and also learning of those areas that are at the cutting edge that I wouldn't know about because I'm not a specialist in that area.
Research Scientist; Cereal Virology, Agriculture and Agri-Food
I think the organisation and the quality of the delegates was very good.
Business Development Manager, Bioline
The information was very informative and helpful. I will suggest this event to all of my friends.
Research Officer, Institute Agri-Biotechnology, Malaysia
I really enjoyed the interaction with the other delegates of the conference, and learning a lot about a new generation of technologies, especially third generation sequencing technologies.
