Q/A Discussion


Session 4: Genome Sequencing & Editing

10:10

Christopher CullisKeynote Presentation

Genome Editing in Flax in Response to Environmental Stress
Christopher Cullis, Professor & Chair, Case Western Reserve University, United States of America

The presenter will discuss about the assay of subsets of these indel variants in the progeny from 19 individuals from three different nutrient regimes, from other flax accessions and even the wild progenitor of flax, Linum bienne which shows that in every case the same two alternative structures are seen. Such reproducible large scale variation is unlikely to occur through multiple independent events and therefore an editing mechanism by which long tracts of the genome can be replaced with an alternative structure is being proposed, and the genes controlling this process mapped.

10:55

Reading Banana Genome Book for Putative Salt Tolerance Associated DNA Markers
V Arunachalam, Principal Scientist, Central Coastal Agricultural Research Institute, India
