gricultural Genomics 2017: Functional Genomics toward Green Crops
for Sustainable Agriculture
(October 25-27, 2017, Wuhan)
Presented by the Huazhong Agricultural University,Nature Genetics
In recent years, agricultural production is facing serious challenges. The contradiction between the population growth, the traditional mode of crop production and resource environment is increasing. The green crops breeding based on agricultural genomics is becoming the key to solving these problems. The conference will present recent genomic breakthroughs aiming to the green technologies of plant breeding and the green goals “Less pesticides, Less fertilizers, water saving and stress resistance, high yield and superior quality, increasing productivity of medium-to-low yielding lands”, for global food security.
The conference will feature keynote speeches, plenary speeches by world-renowned experts in the field, poster presentations contributed by the participants, to discuss the progress of modern genomics and accelerate the genetic improvement of crops and promote the healthy development of sustainable agriculture.
