Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress USA
Date: October 21 - 22, 2024
Venue: USA

The 2024 meeting is returning on October 21 & 22

In 2023, we explored novel strategies and developments in plant genomics and gene editing through a series of case studies and an examination of the latest scientific research. Leaders from academia and industry guided us through the significant breakthroughs in gene-editing technologies such as CRISPR/Cas9, shedding light on their potential applications in improving disease resistance, stress tolerance, and crop yield. Additionally, some talks covered the evolving landscape of computational approaches in studying plant science, along with updates on agricultural biotechnology regulations for genetically engineered organisms by USDA.
