SELECTBIO is delighted to Invite you all to attend its 4th Edition of International Conference on Plant Genetics and Genomics, "Next Gen Crops for Sustainable Agriculture" scheduled to be held on July 19-20, 2018 in Chandigarh, India

The conference will focus on Genetic & Omics Technologies for Crop Improvement & Immunity. It will highlight Advanced Techniques for Plant Profiling, Sequencing & Editing including Analytical techniques, Genomics assisted Breeding, High Throughput techniques, Gene mapping, High Performance Computing, GWAS, NGS, CRISPRs, TALENs & ZFNs and others. The meeting will also discuss about Agronomics aspects & Beneficial Plant-Microbe Interactions to gain insights into Soil Chemistry & Plant Physiology for Improved Agricultural Production.

Presentation Awards

Oral Presentation Award: Best oral paper presented by a Pre-Doctoral Research Scholar will be awarded Best Oral Presentation Award comprising of memento, certificate and cash prize.
Poster Presentation Award: Best poster presented by a Pre-Doctoral Research Scholar will be awarded Best Poster Presentation Award comprising of memento, certificate and cash prize.

Who Should Attend?

• Scientists & Researchers from Academics and Industry working in the field of Agriculture Biotechnology including Plant Genetics & Genomics, Crop Improvement, Disease Resistance, Stress Tolerance, Plant Functional Genomics, Transcriptomics, Metabolomics, Agronomics and Plant-microbe interactions.
