SELECTBIO is delighted to invite you all to attend our 3rd International Conference on Plant Genetics and Genomics "AgriGenomics India 2017" scheduled to be held on July 20-21, 2017 in Chandigarh, India

This Conference will feature Internationally Renowned Scientists from India and Abroad as Speakers. This Conference will address the Genetics and Genomics Approaches for Enhancing Defense Mechanism for Biotic & Abiotic Stress in plants, Plant Genomics & Proteomics, Genome Sequencing & Editing techniques and also the Role of Plant Metabolomics including Engineering & Synthetic Biology Approaches. In addition Regulatory & Biosafety issues in GM Crops will also be discussed. 

Running Alongside the AgriGenomics India 2017 Conference, will be our other Conference "Technologies for Value Addition in Food Products". An Exhibition covering the Latest Technologies in the field of Plant Genetics & Genomics will also be an added feature of the Conference. Registered Delegates can attend all the Co- located Conference and Exhibition.
