SELECTBIO is pleased to invite you to attend the third of our innovative online conferences; Advances in Plant Genomics 2014 (APG 2014). Using a pioneering new platform especially developed for scientific events, this event will be broadcast to your PC or mobile device on 7th-8th October 2014.

During this event, the hottest topics in plant genomics will be addressed in a webinar-style auditorium with the opportunity for live Q&A at the end of each talk. Featuring an array of leading international speakers, this event aims to provide you with an insight into the latest developments in genomic selection of plants. Focus will be given to current efforts to enhance plant resistance to disease, as well as the optimisation of plant growth for both food and biofuel. Presentations will also highlight the use of next-generation technologies and bioinformatics.
